If you have documented proof of the abuse it shouldn't be too hard to request supervised visitations. Hopefully with their age and the fact that he hasn't seen them in a year would get you supervised visitations anyway.

I hope you have a good lawyer and you tell him/her everything. Make sure you let it known that you want your children to be able to know their father... you just want to make sure they are SAFE while doing it and with his abusive history supervised visits are the way to go.

Good luck!!

psychically or emotionally abusive and do you think he'd hurt your little ones? if you think he's a threat to them I'd wait until they're older before you think about anything more than supervised visits. If you don't then I do think they need to get to know their dad. However as many moms will tell you, if you're worried get a custody order in place beforehand.
