My not so dh has had a tendency to follow me on here, so I'm posting under a different username for now. I'm in a really bad spot with my marriage failing, due to infidelity and blatant dishonesty (to the point of illegality) on the part of my nsdh.
I am feeling really anxious about where this all might be headed, and especially anxious about custody issues. We currently live on the west coast, but my family is in the midwest and if I were to have to fall back on resources/support, the midwest (and near/with my family) is where I would want to be. I do not trust nsdh or his family (history of alcohol and sexual abuse, among other things), and I don't feel that I can trust that my 3 y.o. ds would be safe with them for any length of time.
Does anyone have any experience with leaving a partner and the state with a child? Does that even happen? Are there instances of one partner being granted primary custody, short of incarceration of the other partner? If I have to, I will do what I need to to stick it out here and protect my child, but if things are really coming to an end, I would like to be moving forward for the sake of all of us.
Thank you very much, if you have any time or insight to share.
