My husband has an alcohol problem (no DUI’s but various family members on both sides can attest to his antics while intoxicated) and I am concerned for the children’s safety. They are 1 & 3 and I feel that 50/50 is not a good idea until he seeks professional help & has taken the time to build up to parenting; I have had the full responsibility of caring for the children one of which who was born with major medical problems. We had a verbal agreement of every other weekend and once during the week (I agreed to this so that he couldn’t say I say I was keeping them from him,) and he has now decided to keep them from me & isn't returning my calls or texts. Does he have a true chance of getting 50/50? Is there anything I can do to get them back since he is not willing going to work with me?Divorce was file April 23 but no orders have been put in place. We are currently living apart. Proof: I would have to see if the hospital has record of his drinking there while our son was in the NICU & see if I can get our marriage counseling records where he confesses to having a drinking problem. Or call character witnesses to testify to his drinking.
