My cognitively disabled sister is divorcing her domestically abusive husband, and he has convinced her to agree to 50/50 custody of their two young children. The children themselves have not been hurt by him, but after knowing this man for four years I am concerned for their safety. He has been convicted of battery for the domestic abuse toward my sister including one instance that hospitalized her, multiple disorderly conduct charges, and in 1998 was charged with 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of Child and 4th Degree Sexual Assault. Are there any laws that would prevent him from receiving custody of their two children or any legal action that can be taken to prevent him from having them without supervision?
