Currently living in MA with daughter 23 month old, since November 2013. Divorce in process in the familycourt od Delaware. Husband just filed for child custody (joint) in DE family court. Husband moved out and left our daughter with me in September 2013. He is abusive and that is why I got out of Delaware. He had a domestic violence case but he begged me to not show up in the hearing so the case gets dissmissed, and I did it! So dumb! The abuse never stopped. He got his case expunged (without my knowldge at that time), but I do have the police report. I have a good job in MA, daughter is happy, goes to daycare, very attached to my family. My aunt takes care of her 3 days of the week. Daughter still a DE resident since she hasnt been here for 6 months. Will be forced to move back to DE?
