My husband was awarded temporary custody of our baby in June of this year. His reasons were because I told him I was going to flee with the baby back to Canada! This is true I did say this. However we are now going back to court on this Friday to settle everything. Including custody. The thing is my daughter has never been with him since he was awarded custody, she has been in Florida with his parents, and he is in north dakota. Anyway. While I was with him he was very abusive to me. I have 1 picture that shows me with 2 black eyes caused by him, and also my sister had to come and pick me up from north dakota in August of 06 because he beat me and I wanted to leave him! And she will be in court to testify on my behalf about this! Will the judge take this into consideration when we go to court? Will this help me regain my daughter? Will they give custody to someone who is a known abuser?

If he has a record of child abuse they will not let him have a child. If he has hurt you and you never said anything until now, they might. Im not a lawyer but i did just go through the training for foster care, and i know that the system will want to know that he is fit to take a child before they will just give the baby to him. Good luck.
