I understand what my wife and others in cluding you say. I know he isn't willing to see he has a problem. it is sad because you want to be there for your family but i don't believe in laying hands on a woman and he lies a lot about it but I saw th ebruises and I know she has some emotional problems but she is good to her kids and never did she deserve to get hit. I hope we can find some common ground like you said outside the issues with my brother but she is in hiding from him now and that is probably in her best interest unfortunately. My wife said it was pretty unusual for a judge to keep kids from a parent with a restrained order even though they dismissed that case the judge at the hearing says it can be brought up again at anytime, is that true? (the one without prejudice, those don't make sense to me)
thanks for the help.
