My wife left me for another man (which I did not find out about until after our separation agreement had been signed); she moved in with this guy, he’s got a criminal record that includes assault and a few other offenses, he threatened to kill me on my property in front of my daughter, and has admitted to me that he would “spank” my daughter if he felt the need to do so when she was in my wife’s care even though I have explicitly said that he can’t do so (I have all of this on recording). In the same recording he also said that he hasn’t been hitting her up until this point though… My daughter is 3 years old getting ready to turn 4 and has told me that he has hit her in the face before.
I spoke with an attorney and they advised me to try and get a domestic violence protective order against him on myself and on my little girl.
Would this even be possible? and how hard is it to obtain?
