Our expert says:
Contact your nearest branch of one of the agencies which advise and help abused women. You are describing a low-life, cowardly and abusive bully. If he nts to take the child, you should have consulted Child Services for an assessment, and to be sure that custody is properly decided by a court of law, which is unlikely to easily grant custody to an abuser.
Discuss with the agency ( a group like POWA ) how best to protect yourself and your rights. You can approach the police and the courts for help ; you can get a court order forbidding him from contacting you or threatening you, or approaching you, or he goes to jail if he disobeys the court order. Also, it gives you some protection if others know who he is, what he has done and threatened, and when he knows that this is known, he must also know that if you come to any harm, he will be the obvious suspect.
