PIOG..... Child abuse/custody?

PIOG but group is kinda dead right now so I'm bumping in here



Here's the deal.



I'm relocating across the country to be with my fiancé in the army. We're going to get married after we move. I am a divorced single mother. My son goes to his dads house every weekend, I have physical custody and we have joint legal custody. I'm fighting for sole legal and physical custody and to move and change the parenting plan.



My case, I have a restraining order on father, he has a PT job, he hasn't paid me child support in over a year, he pretends to be the best role model but he's horrible and my son is scared of him. I'm very stable and will be even more stable after being married.



What are my chances?



ETA

Well as unfortunate as this is my chances are better now, as I picked my son up from his father house this past weekend he had immediatly told me his dad hit him with a hammer and umbrella and had 4 different marks on him, his dad hit him with the hammer handle. I took my son to the ER and got X-rays done and TRO on my ex for my son. Idk where to go from here and what to do about everything. Any advice?

All of that is done. His dad didn't break skin but left bruises on 4 different areas, I mean idk this is a big deal to me, police are down playing it. Could he get child abuse for this?

Did you file a police report about the incidences? If not, I would do that asap. If you have a lawyer have him file ex partè for emergency temporary custody. You could call protective services and press charges on him. Document everything. The marks, the x-rays etc...

I made the hospital call the police and filed a police report with them. I've been speaking with the domestic violence people and want to get cps involved and interview my son. I have a temporary restraining order on my e husband for my child and our trial is in 2 weeks to get a permanent one
