Question Details: I have a 5 year old son who we have established joint custody of, his father has proven himself unfit attempted to kill himself when child was supposed to be in his care, multiple arrests for assault, currently in anger management classes. My son is starting to show signs of aggression punching himself in the face when mad or in trouble, also his father has broken our agreement on taxes in the custody agreement he has falsely claimed him for 5 years when it's supposed to be every other year among many other things. So I'm wondering, how much of a chance I have at winning and if I have enough of a case to take to court?
If the Father has done as you say and you have a proven track record here, and you can prove that the situation is taking its toll on your son (take him to a therapist to talk with please) then you need to file a petition to modify the custody agreement asap. I think you have a shot. Get a good lawyer.
