My mother has had temporary custody of my now 4/5 year old niece and nephew. It has been over 4 years in and out of court. Two years ago she finally decided to separate from my biological father. He was very abusive to us and has a criminal history of drug possession, trafficking, and assaulting a police officer. He spent over 10 years in jail since i was born. Three of my siblings were shot because of his lifestyle and are now following in his footsteps. My father and 2 of my siblings moved with him to another state with his father who is also a criminal/registered sex offender. My mother got an order of protection against him (which has been violated) and he's trying to use the children as a way to get to her. He has done this with me and my other siblings. There are more details.
