I have been with my husband since my stepson was 1 month old. We had joint custody with his biological mom the first 5 years. When he was 5 she "gave him" to us. After about 9 months we took her to court & filed for custody on "abandonment" & my husband was awarded custodial parent. A couple months after this she moved to several states way. She sees him on average of once a year for about 5 weeks. He is 12 years old now. We also have a 7 year old daughter together. Things between my husband & I are not good. He has become verbally abusive to me & the children. I am very hesitant to leave because I would be splitting up the kids & they have never known life apart from each other. Also, it would kill me to not be able my stepson. What are my rights for visitation?
