Is there anything other than you love your kids, you can say to a judge to get custody of them, and away from their alcoholic father?
That you are a better mother and you have never harmed them, and you feel they would be in danger with their father. Maybe you could say he should see them in supervised conditions because you think every child should have a father. The judge may see that you are clearly thinking about your children
Prove to the judge that your financially stable, that you can put food on the table and supply clothes and what not.Also make sure to tell them that you have a good job.. The judge needs to know that you love them and can give them what they need until their of age.
By showing the judge the true mother that you are. Loyal, dedicated, loving, caring, honest, authoritative, selfless and so many other ways that I can describe you as I know you. Don't worry baby, it will work out!
Thanks and I was thinking along the same lines with the supervised visits
