my 8 year old child has told me during visits.that she witness her mom & stepfather have physical & verbal altercations more than 1x & he scares her & that he slaps her(my child) in the back of her head for wetting herself.

So it looked as if i called them out of spite there is already an evaluation(forensics) that has been ordered (finally) I've tried discussing things with the mother but of course she deny's it. how serious does the court take children witnessing domestic violence and how should I approach this? Can I file a motion for emergency custo
