Had 3 or 4 episodes since Jan, so less manageable rapid cycling form of the mental disorder. Mental illness is in her family. Several suicide attempts.
She has physically & emotionally abused me, kids & others. I pressed charges when she sent me to the hospital, case is on the SA's desk.
I currently have physical custody & 100% time-sharing of the kids & wish to keep it that way after the divorce. She is delibertly holding up the divorce by not taking the required parenting class. Controling
The kids are young - both under 4. No attachment to their mom - she never wanted them & it showed in her parenting. The kids have a solid attachment to myself, family & friends.
How do I keep sole legal & physical custody of the kids? Is there any way she can terminate her parental rightsI do not know where she is currently living, so how do I get a home investigation? 2 closed DCF cases. 1 from the attcak that put me in the hospital. She threatened the kids, which lead to the injunction & filing divorce. 2nd she called the abuse hotline '4 year old hadn't washed in 2 days'. Trying to prosecute for filing a false abuse claim. I had emergency custody from the DV injunction, went to the hearing, she got partial time-sharing & had to supply a mental health evalutaion at a later date. After her 1st over night visit called me begging to give 100% time sharing, afraid she would harm the kids. She went to court 3 times to get it changed -filed a motion that was denied, filed another motion, finally a hearing where she asked the court to give me 100% time sharing.
