I wasn't there obviously but I believe my brother because she is calling him from no caller ID numbers asking "is ____ your address?" She just seems to be taking it as a joke when this is very serious for him. He told me she was throwing things at him and kicked his dog (but again I... Read more »
My daughters dad has been inconsistent with seeing her the last year of her life (she’s 2) and hasn’t seen her for a total of a month now, has all ways of me contacting him blocked, but guilt trips his mom about not seeing her, but I don’t want to get in trouble if I don’t allow visits. I... Read more »
Knows it's not true and this is not my husband first time. He's done this before to other women. And I am currently pregnant with our child. So what is the chance of getting the epo on me overturned to a dvo on him.
Assault 4, DV, minor injury. Can this be reversed without him having to serve the 180 days? Serious enough financial issues that my kids and I could be homeless within 2 months. I work, but we had everything based on both incomes and mine is about 1/3 of his. Are financial issues enough for a... Read more »

He had hit me multiple times when I was pregnant with her, my parents manipulate him and enable his behaviors. He has been... Read more »
I live in Kentucky and my ex husband is attempting to get half custody of my 18 month old.
In February, due to past physical violence and life-threatening text messages, I got an EPO on him. When we went to court for the EPO, the judge decided on a 3 year DVO and opened up a child abuse... Read more »
In KY, initially the presumption of time between parents is now 50/50. However, that presumption can be rebutted with evidence such as you describe in your narrative above. So, assuming those evidence is substantial and can be proven, it is unlikely that he will get anything close to half.
I obtained the dogs legally, months after he was arrested, but before I moved out of the house we shared. Is this grounds for violating the epo? How do I report this? Is there a motion to the courts for this? Meaning will I have to go to court again to testify against him?
Those are not grounds for violating the dvo. Go to your local county attorney and file a criminal complaint for violation if an epo/dvo, which is a class A misdemeanor. They will prosecute him for the violation.
One of the children is under joint custody, and the report for one of the incidents has been substantiated by CPS (he admitted to hitting the other child - who is fully in our custody, not related to her ex - with a dog leash). The other records indicate abuse may still be present with the child... Read more »
They are confidential records but are certainly the court should know about them (especially if the CPS case was before the same court). Idk why the lawyer would not submit them or make the court aware of them unless it is possibly a matter of strategy and timing. You should ask.
Can I use those messages against him? How does the court know he is avoiding getting served and since he has bad undiagnosed mental problems and also addiction to Meth can the court force him to get help?
