My ex is threatening sole custody because he does not like my husband. My son is 9 a straight A student and plays multiple sports. My current husband went through a bought of depression and drank too much due to loosing his job. It caused an argument which my son heard. My son told his father now his father wants custody. My current husband has fought the depression and no longer drinks. We provide an encouraging loving home and my son thrives in his studies and sports. My ex also has hit my son numerous times tells him terrible stories about us and constantly threatens to hit him if he doesn't tell him what goes on in our household. He rarely pays child support and told me if I take him to court for support he will take me to court for custody. He tells me if I don't allow him to file him as a dependent on his taxes he will take me for support. My son cries every time his father picks him up because he doesn't want to go and is afraid of him. How can I prevent him from getting custody?
