There is a preference in this state that the children reside with one of the parents when the other parent is not able. The children should stay with you if he has to do jail time, and/or treatment. If you wanted to file for a change in custody this may be a good time because of the instability that the children are facing in the other parent's care.
I would discuss this matter further with a few attorneys.
