Legal Question

Asked on: 9/09/13, 2:12 pm

I am pregnant due in November. The father (my ex) was extremely abusive while we were together, and I managed to finally move out and leave him in August. He is threatening for full custody unless I get back together with him, I want him to have supervised visitations. I have character witnesses, including my prenatal nurse, but I don't have any physical evidence (police were called once but no report was filed, no hospitalizations). He threatened to 'kill the child when it was born' several times, and I don't trust him with an infant at all. He currently is unemployed, living with his parents since I moved out of our apartment, going to grad school, about 30 miles away. My parents live 4 hours away and think I should move home, but I have an apartment and a job here. Would it be in my child's best interest (safety) to move, even though I'd become unemployed, and still have rent to pay, or do I have a case to stay here and still protect him/her?
