My husband wants a divorce and is using the new No-Fault law as grounds. I can prove adultery, cruel and inhumane treatment, abandonment, sexual abandonment. Can I counter sue him on those grounds ? Also, I have filed petitions for modification of custody of our daughter wanting sole, legal custody and I am seeking no visitation based on his drug and alcohol addictions as well as his mental problems (Schitzophrenia and Bi-polar depression) which he refuses to admit and seek treatment for. He was arrested 6 times between June and August 2010, all alcohol related. He was given medication for his mental issues and told our daughter "I don't need that crap, there is nothing wrong with me. I am only taking it for the courts" which my daughter has told my attorney. I am have also filed apetitiion to violate him for the original court order that he is not allowed around my daughter while under the influence, which he has done many times and has been documented by the police. He has a 30 plus year arrest record all drug and alcohol related, mental issues and my daughters therapist and psychiatrist both feel he is detramental to my daughters emotional well being. What do you think will happen ?
