This seems like a mental health issue of your ex...

Yes Links17. He has brain damage from a motorcycle accident. Left in the morning as my husband, came out of hospital a stranger with an explosive temper. Very sad .

Tough situation. Though I'm still confused a tad on how it's so difficult for you to obtain hard evidence of this temper?

You state that neighbours have him on video doing property damage while you were away. Why not include this as some evidence?

I do have tons of evidence, police, CAS, school, doctors and specialists reports, counsellors , etc. if you took away everything I said or any accusations I have made and stuck to the evidence and accusations of others it would be open and shut. Even a member of his family and his friends have sworn affidavits regarding his temper. Family court does not protect children even with evidence. How horrific and frustrating is that?
I will be using the video next time in court

After I read more of your case, I am not pessimistic despite all what you wrote or what has happened. What you do need is a good lawyer. If you cannot get even a legal aid one, go represent yourself. Ask questions here. I can recommend a couple of books. It is sad what has happened to him but that doesn't mean children should suffer. A millionaire father keeping his kids and ex wife poor...?....I'd never give up for neither cs nor ss. If he was a regular worker making money cheque by cheque then it is a typical case which you have people for and against but those who have millions or companies....no one would be against you....never give up.

Why hasen't your lawyer suggested to you to ask for power of attorney regarding your Ex's affairs?

A power of attorney (POA) or letter of attorney is a written authorization to represent or act on another's behalf in private affairs, business, or some other legal matter, sometimes against the wishes of the other. The person authorizing the other to act is the principal, grantor, or donor (of the power).

His changed behavior is a medical fact since his accident, there should be no problem for you to assume the family's financial welfare? You could easily prove that he is not able to make sound decisions due to his brain damage...

I don't think he or the court would accept a spouse who is the process of divorcing the person as a power of attorney. I am thinking he would need a family member to be his power of attorney.

You are just complaining because your issue isn't resolved. Your issue is just going through the processes.

Eventually,
-They will impute an income
-They will get you a restraining order and supervised access
-They will probably seize his assets/money since he has shown he isn't going to cooperate with making support payments.

There is no injustice, you are just complaining that things aren't resolved.

As for moving, file a motion ask for permission to move. If you are in a low-employment area and want to move to a hight employment area and your ex is not visiting with the kids they will not deny you.

It boggles my mind why your lawyer hasn't received an Interim Order for Spousal Support. Again, what Orders (if any) do you have in place? Surely you must have at least an Interim Order for Child Support?

Yes an interim CS order was made which he did not pay for 8 mos. The judge was angry about that when we went to court and threatened him with severe consequences if he did not pay it within 5 days . He paid it. That was a long time ago. He is now several months in behind then out of the blue will make a partial payment. Has never yet paid on time and owes interest as well. I have been to the Ombudsman. Exhausted from having to do this on a regular basis.
Feeling beat up .
Last week my parents were killed in an MVA. Kids are beside themselves. My parents were my greatest support. I feel numb and lost. Just want there to be some hope for some kind of a life for the kids and I. Probably not thinking as clearly as normal because of my parents passing.
