My son is now 12 and I let him go live with his dad when he was 5. The reason, I let my ex bully me into it. I was scared, I knew I did not have the money for a custody battle and being that my ex is a manipulative, abusive control freak who still knows how to rile me up, I let this happen.
five years ago, I made an attempt to get my son back, we hired lawyers, sat in front of a judge who decided that although both of us were fit parents, the child was to live with my ex because that is where he had been living.
A little back story, we divorced when our son was 2. We both re-married when he was 7. My ex has had nothing but problems in his marriage while mine remains rock solid. My ex's wife has left him at least twice, the most recent being this past April. She has always told me how horrible he is and made attempts to drag me into their drama.
My ex called me a few days ago and said that his wife was going to move back in and they were going to reconcile. I am not okay with this.
He was verbally, emotionally and physically abusive to me, how do I know this is not going on in his house with this woman?
He claims our son wants ot stay there because his friends are there.
I do not feel this a stable envrionment for our son...do I have a case to get custody back even though my son claims he wants to stay?
I have a meeting set up with an attorney but not for a few days.
