The children and I were abused for 17 years. I don't like my divorce judge, he is favoring my husband. I would like to sue my husband in civil court with a different judge. Can I bring a civil suit against my husband while we are in middle of our divorce/custody suit? On the advice of my lawyer and did not bring grounds of domestic abuse in the divorce because my husband was not contesting the divorce but I do bring up the spousal abuse as grounds for custody.
