a little back ground . when he divorced my mom he was fixing to retire so he moved us with my mom to his familys property ... he divorced my mom behind her back . told the judge she cheated on him and abandoned him and all 3 kids that were still at home. my mom found out because my aunt told my oldest sister and my sister called her crying because my mom didnt tell her. so my mom had to take him back to court and redo the divorce. he could have went to jail but for some reason the judge didnt send him... I got a call last night from my step mom last night and she was crying . my dad filed for divorce and she didnt know it. got her removed from the home. now he is telling everyone she was cheating on him... I have trouble believing that. cause of the way he did my mom... I know for a fact my mother never ever cheated on him. that he was the one cheating on her. we have proof ... I think the way he is going about this is wrong. I dont care for my step mom all that much but on this I am on her side. I know my dad too well... I advised my stepmom to get her a good lawyer. aparently my step mom is afraid of my dad... he said he wanted to kill her and her daughter her daughters kids but the only reason he didnt do it is because he didnt want to go to jail. so my step mom is afraid for her life. and yes my dad has an abusive side to him. he used to beat my mom and sometimes his kids(but not often) ... I dont think he has ever hit my step mom. I know he yells at her alot. at 38 sometimes I am afraid of my dad. something has happened this past year that he has gotten worse. i know he has been having alot of mini strokes lately and the cannot figure out why. I am now not wanting to be around my dad since he is acting like a major nut case. I told my step mom I will be here for her. I go to church with her. and yes we have had our problems but now I am thinking it was much more my dad then her. please pray that he doesnt do something to hurt her or her family. cause i really believe he can.
