Hi,I'm looking for some help in family law. A year ago I gave birth to a daughter. I was still with the father at the time. He was an abusive man sometimes physically but mostly mentally. Also at the time, I had my 3-year-old daughter that wasn't his. Every week or when we had money, he would get blind drunk and become uncontrollable. My 3-year-old was also told to stay in her room to play all night and day. She only came out for meals. I thought things would change when I had his child but no it didn't. Often, when baby would cry, he would scream and tell her to shut up. He began introducing my 3-year-old as his stepdaughter and they baby as his biological daughter to my 3-year-old's face thus she began introducing herself as that which broke my heart. I wanted to give my baby daughter my last name but I was intimidated into giving her his last name. When she was 3 months old, I left the state without his knowledge and lived with her ever since. She is now a year old. He hasn't paid any child support. He keeps demanding me to go back and let him see her, but he is the one more mobile and can come here to see her. Now I heard some news that he has put out a recovery order for her. I don't know what to do and I don't understand how he got a recovery order, but I need to protect her. He is a very angry and unsafe person to be in a house with. I also came to know that he, with 2 other people are suspects in an 18 month old's death 5 years ago, which is an unsolved case. Please help me. What action should I take?
