BM is with an unstable man
I am so glad I found StepChat. My husband has two kids with his ex. We have an arrangement outside of court, that has worked well until recently. BM has been with this guy for a year or so and he honestly seemed like an amazing step dad. I know he loves them and just generally enjoys being around them. That being said, he has PTSD and snaps anytime he and the BM get into an argument. She pushes him and he will eventually pull a loaded gun on either himself or her as a threat... WHILE THE KIDS ARE THERE. Thankfully when he does this they are not in the room or aware of the situation. My husband asked her to put an EPO on him and not let him in the home or around the kids. But the very next day he is back in the home. We just found out this is happening and my husband wants to get custody. But I have doubts that this is enough of a reason for a court to hand over custody.
