My ex husband of 5 years is an alcoholic and has recently been taking his drunken rage out on my 8 year old daughter. She says she it's afraid of going back. I have kept a log off all the drunken mishaps he has had over the last 5 years but for the last 2 we have lived 1000 miles apart and when I talk to my child on the phone he is always listening. She is supposed to return to get dad January 5 but I have been having trouble getting attorneys to call me back bc of the holidays. If I'm not able to get the emergency custody before January 5 if I keep my daughter here can I be arrested? I live in Texas he lives in Colorado we were divorced in Texas.
