While that sucks after all of the time and energy as I have put into us I have to focus on our kids best interest first. If he feels I am wrong then I don't know what else to do. Late last night he sent a bunch of texts saying he wanted to die. I talked to him but ended up hanging up when he told me to "shut the fuck up". His threats continued all of today and it's gotten out of hand. I called at one point to try to talk him down and once again hung up after he called me a c u next tuesday. And the suicidal texts continue.
I have informed his roommate and his parents. I have screenshots of every word exchanged for the last four days and have sent copies to myself, his dad, and an email I use only for important things that he doesn't know about (in case he somehow hacks my other one).
Looking ahead I am now worried about his interactions with our kids. He has threatened to hurt himself before and has gone as far as scratching his wrist "to prove a point" a few months ago. I honestly don't believe he would do anything permanent. He is simply trying to get me to break as he's done before.
My question is this, seeing as he is clearly unhinged is there a process for making sure he isn't alone with our kids or would the court not see him as a threat? I don't believe he would hurt them but he doesn't always have the longest of fuses and has thrown things and cussed out inanimate objects while they are present. He also lives 5+ hours away and has never been alone with them overnight so I am not really worried about custody at this point. Just not sure how visitation type stuff works. Sorry so long but any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
