My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Tennessee
The father of my 3 year old son lives in my house in Tennessee (I own the home). I am considering making him leave because he has a lot of anger issues. He has threatened to sue me for custody if I make him move out (we are not married). He has been arrested 4 times for threatening/assault on other people. He endangers the safety of our son by not watching him when they are together, leaving loaded firearms in his vehicle when the child rides with him (he has a permit to carry). I limit the places he is allowed to take him (short trips to grocery store, bank, etc.) in public, close to home. He has also lashed out at him once hitting him with a leather strap for touching his stuff. He also acts in ways that is inappropriate, ie walks around with no underwear/ pants on. The few times my son has slept with him (we do not sleep in the same room), he sleeps nude (I do NOT feel that there is risk of sexual abuse, just inappropr). I have talked to him about taking parenting classes, but he does not believe he needs them. Can he get shared custody and is supervised visitation possible until the child is old enough to protect himself better?
