My ex is on criminal trial for abusing one of our children. They're being charged for a class a and class b felony by the state. Child Protective Services has substantiated the abuse, and I currently have sole physical custody, they have visitation rights (which are currently suspended due to a restraining order provided by the courts "until further notice"), and joint legal. We have an order in effect that is pending on the police investigation which was written up by the GaL, so the court is aware of the allegations, and still allowed visitation with the abusive party. I would like to open the case again to remove their parental rights and get sole custody. I'm not sure what my chances are, whether I should file for temporary emergency custody, or I should just open a custody case.
