my husband and i have been seperated since january 7 of 2011 he was abusive and got addicted to vicadins and has been to rehab.. he hasnt seen my daughter but a couple times since then he as not paid any child support or supported her in any way shape or form.. i am now with someone new and are planning a wedding but my husband never wanted to grant me my divorce .now hes in jail im hoping i can file and get full custody of my daughter so my fiance can adopt her. he has been in her life since august of 2011 and she calls him dad.. she doesnt even know my husband as her father seeing as she will be 3 in may. i was just wondering if their is anyway i can file on my own and possibly get granted full custody without it being a nasty mess. beacuse if he does get out i dont trust him with her
