I have 3 kids, one of whom is with my very recent ex. The father manipulated the truth, pathologically lies, and has basically led a double life with affairs.
He has been mentally and emotionally abusive toward my children, including screaming profanities about me in the face of our 17-month-old son. I have found things out about him that are unbelievable. He has a history of playing people, and the relationship itself seemed to be nothing but a cover story and a game.
I was told by a friend that he could be a sociopath. When I researched it, I was STUNNED! And scared! I am thoroughly convinced that he has major problems and do not want him to inflict harm on our son.
How do I prove that there's cause for concern? I'm worried about my son. PLEASE help!I should have clarified. I apologize. Nothing has gone to court - yet. I am currently trying to print emails, texts, and obtain a police report copy from when he threw a shoe at me and grabbed my arm last summer. I lied to the police when they arrived to save him, as he'd pointed out that he could no longer work in security with a firearm if arrested. He had ME feeling guilty. I have also, an ER injury report from 2005 when he shoved an ex of his and she stumbled and fell on the asphalt. She protected him also. Everything seems like a big game to him, and I know deep down he has serious issues. I'm just concerned about showing up to court and looking crazy because he puts on a good show. I have a decent amount of evidence in terms of his physical and verbal abuse, but it's hard to prove that he has these sociopathic qualities, as they are "good actors" as an article said. I just want to protect my son and be able to move forward already.
