My ex-husband and I have two children, ages 7 and 6. In the divorce, I was granted custody and he was given "liberal visitation as the parties agree". I have given him every opportunity, but he has not seen the kids since December 2008 and has not talked to them in 11 months. He is also extremely abusive (but not on record). The kids and I are afraid of him and do not want him to pop in and out of their lives. Even though he has not seen them in so long, he can begin visiting again if he so chooses. I have recently filed a Motion for Modification of Custody, Time Sharing and Other Relief, in order to remove visitation rights, and am currently waiting for his default date. Is there anything else I can do to remove his rights entirely?
