From your previous posts, if I understand, you have primary custody…your ex took the children and kept them for 3 1/2 months. There was domestic violence during your marriage but charges were not filed even though you documented. You have had the children since Jan. and sometime in July your daughter reported to you an abuse occurance to her while they were with their father because she was afraid that they would have to go back to his care. The abuse that she reported happened to her was exactly like one that you were a victim of during your marriage to him, the children witnessed this abuse. So, you called DSS and they opened an investigated on you, but though they talked to him they not able to do anything due to him living in Alabama. He has now filed for custody and child support for the 3rd time, you believe in retaliation to your accusations of abuse.
I have one question…how would reconciling with this man who is abusive to you and your children help protect them?
I don’t know what to suggest to you …Child abuse, to my knowledge, is illegal in all 50 states. I don’t know for certain but I would like to think that there is some way that they can protect a child in one state from abuse in another state.
I believe that, as Golfball posted previously, it would be up to the judge to decide if testimony from your daughter is heard on this matter if you are allowed to bring it up in court.
