All you can do at this point is to see what happens in court then. None of us here are lawyers or know the laws of your state and how the court defines them and uses them in court matters concerning custody, visitation, and child support. But you also need to understand that what you want and what you get in a court procedure is two different things and that what the judge decides may not be to your liking but you have to live up to the orders that are set.

I know its not okay to say things like that over the phone, in person, or put on the social web sites or in emails. The things is as I have said and the others have said, until the judge is satisfied that he is a danger to the child to the point of taking visits away or supervised ones are set up, he has a right to a relationship to his child.

And he is saying those things because he knows it scares you. You need to get a bit of a back bone and start keeping track of those things said, the date and time. You will need that in court. Its harassment. At the same time Jodi has said that unless he has actually hurt the child, he is going to get some sort of visitation. If you fear for things going on around your child you can ask for supervised visits. But its up to the judge to decide what is best for this child. You need to get custody set up ASAP.

Here's the thing. His violence was against you, not his child. Unless you have evidence that he is a danger to the child, they are most likely to give him some level of visitation. You could push for supervised visitation.
