| | Is it better to file an at fault divorce?
My wife and I have been married for four years, two of which was apart. She has always had a problem with authority and other peoples concerns.
After she got her second DUI in 2006 and had a suspended license she still drove her car, even with our New born son at the time. After she finally got her license renewed after the suspension period she got another DUI in 2008, and with our son in the car. The child endangerment charge was nol prossed recently. A week before she got that DUI she got arrested for simple battery and went to jail for attacking me.
This January, she got her fourth DUI, (only third due to non reciprocal state), again with our son in the car. After her last DUI she voluntarily went into rehab for treatment and spent six months there. During this time I have been caring for our son. Well, last week she wanted to see him and I made the arrangements. Figuring since she was still in out-patient rehab there would be no way she would take him with her to where she is still in her program. Well the first thing she did was hightail it back to her city with my son.
She will no longer let me see my son until she serves me with divorce papers and gets an order to share custody with me. She is still going to apply for permanent physical custody too. I have never harmed our child and she has nothing bad to say about me as a parent, and I have all her records, and she still thinks she is the more responsible parent.
In this matter is it better to get a fault divorce for her alcohol addiction and DUI convictions or just leave it at irreconcileable differences? I want to retain permanent legal custody of my son. I live in GA, too.
