Background: Im a good mother with a clean record background, emotional past with divorced parents , end up with a guy for attention and love not knowing he himself had a short temper, ends up hitting me over the years but i stayed with him because we had lots of kids together, we have 5 kids together one who is diagnosed with cerebral palsy since accidental birth which resulted in lawsuit.. eventually i left him remarried, he remarried, we are getting along over many years (about 4 yrs) Even though we had joint custody I was very open and lienant , let him come over to my house actually a trust owned house for my son. I allowed him to come over the his kids , let him stay inside this house with our kids every weekend or whenever he could.when he came over i and my new husband would leave.. his background : My ex husband has a very bad temper, he used to beat me up, im afraid he might take his anger out on my kids someday, you would touch his face he wouldnt hold back.. he has a felony of abuse and child abuse -due to the kids watching what he did to me. My son with cerebral palsy has fell at school because his stepdad was struggling to get him out of the van and onto the school grounds in which turns out someone called on my husband of suspected child abuse ( i think either the school or my ex husband cps cant tell me) keep in mind the whole staff and its written on the iep that we created a lot of strategies, hes also on psych meds --weight gain,possibility of aggression, etc.. my question is, my ex husband wants to take legal possibly physical sole custody of my disabled son , before this he called cps on me and the cops , throwing accusations my way, but cps and the cop didnt take my kids for they said i just need help and im overwhelmed with life.. they recommended respite services for us parents so i asked for it, he had told the cops that my son had a smelly room with feces and urine, cop came over and said he doesnt see or smell nothing..dont know what else to do ,what could i do ? since i have no past record like he does would it be possible for me to get legal sole custody of my disabled son?Answer Question

he has a felony of abuse and child abuse -due to the kids watching what he did to me.
He can waste his money if he wants but no court in their right mind would award him full custody considering the above.

My other question is, why just the disabled son? Why not fight for all of them if he is going to fight? This is what stood out to me when I wondered that:
let him come over to my house actually a trust owned house for my son.
How does this work? You are on title? or is the home owned by the trust? Is he trying to get control of the disabled son so he has access to the trust?

This is a question to ask a lawyer. There would have to be extreme circumstances for them to grant you sole custody unless he was willing.
