Hi Maria
very few nature mother would lose custody. I will not go back to him for any reason, unless you love him. He is always going to be who he is. do something to control your fear. join supporting group, talk to a affordable lawyer.... do whatever that can prepare you for the trial. by any chance that you have the proof that the police reports are false. It would be nice to take the proof to court and hang loose. deal with it when it comes. good luck

First, don't go back to him--do you really want your son to grow up thinking this is how he should treat a woman?? You said he is violent, do you really want to put your son in danger??

Second, if he is attaching false police reports, all you have to do is obtain an official copy of your criminal record from your local law enforcement agency. Some places you have to pay for it, but it's not much--$20-$30. Fabricating police reports is a crime, and so is lying in court, and providing falsified evidence. If the documents he attached are proven to be fabricated in court, he could face jail time and heavy fines, plus, you would win your custody battle easily and make it very difficult for him to be taken seriously by any judge in the future should he ever try to take you to court again.
