Hi, I'm seeking help on obtaining full parental responsibility and custody of children for my 3-year-old child. The father and I were together for over 10 years, before he became addicted to meth and is now a dealer and involved in crime, burglaries and assaults, which resulted in our separation. I have a temporary Violence Restraining Order against him. He's facing charges on intent to sell and supply and will likely to go jail. He's currently on bail at the moment. He's a dangerous man and involved in instigating attacks on other people and had also been attacked (and hospitalised) himself in retaliation. I don't want him near us and would like to relocate interstate. He's said he will stop me from leaving and is not interested in negotiating (ie I said we could come back for holidays each year so he can see our child, Skype, etc). He had nothing to do with our child when we were together, spent no time with him or undertook any care/parental duties. He was not interested. He's even said that he wants our child nearby just so he can pretend to be a doting father in the hopes of getting sympathy from the court to try to get a lighter sentence. I know it's hard to get sole parental responsibility, but do I have grounds to try to get it? Is it any easier to get if/when he goes to jail? I'm desperately worried about my child being exposed to his lifestyle and activities and coming to harm. Thank you for any family law help.
