Our expert says:
If she has attempted suicide in the past and is under treatment for depression, her psychiatrist ought to be notified of her current behaviour and problems. As for the father's rights, a lawyer would beed to be consulted, but she is NOT allowed to make those decisions unilaterally or maliciously, and the prime question is always what would be best for the child. Obviously, it would be useful for everyone to persuade her to see a personal counsellor, and preferably a marriage counsellor along with her husband. Its hard to respect someone who refuses to make any attempt to reconcile or work within counselling when its a normal marital squabble rather than a situation of abuse.
And if she is assaulting the child, child welfare could become involved and insist on better protection for the child
