My wife seems adamant that I will only receive visitation rights, and can not receive any type of custody of our 3 children. I was involved in every aspect of our children’s lives prior to the separation. However, when I left her, she was so hurt that she proceeded to tell our children about an affair I had 5 years prior. My eldest son (16 yo) came to my apartment to confront me. I asked him to leave, but he refused. I took him by the arm and showed him the door, so his mom filed a 50b against me for all three children. Now she and her lawyer are saying I now have a “history of violence”, and so there’s no way I am eligible for custody.
Is this true? Does this lone incident condemn me to being an every other weekend dad?
