custody suit

HI
I am facing a court date for custody of my two sons just days after Thanksgiving. The boys would like to live with me (their dad is neglectful, uses drugs, etc.) They are afraid to speak up because, as my son puts it, "I don't want (him) to become mean and treat me like he did you." His father became abusive to the point he tried to have someone rape me, pushed and shoved me, destroyed property, dumped our dogs in the country, stalked me, etc. Fearing death, (yes, it got that bad) I finally left him - following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Life hasn't been easy since filing for divorce, but it is certainly better. Unfortunately, we live in a state where father's rights are not questioned and it is exceedingly difficult to get anything other than 50/50 custody. His lawyer even said in court "the abuse couldn't have been that bad" because I put up with it for so lng. {As a stay-at-home mom, what choice did I have? I had no means to leave. It took years to get there. The judge defers to his lawyer. I am representing myself.}
My boys would prefer to live with me. (One said their dad served them food with mouse turds for Sunday dinner. It's not necessary - he treats his girlfriend to lobster and steak, owns multiple properties, etc. I didn't ask for property in our divorce - but I do want the children.)
SO - my request:
I would like the court to grant me full custody. Their dad can have some visitation, if God so chooses, but I would prefer full legal and actual custody.
This would allow the boys and I to leave here and find work in a different part of the country where we have emotional support of friends, community and church.
I know God's will will prevail (regardless of the fact my son's dad is anti-Christian and I am a Christian) but I do have a lot of fear that is crippling my hope at this point. Please pray that God's will be done, that Jesus see fit to let me have full legal and actual custody of my kids, that we be allowed to leave Missoula to seek work and life elsewhere.
Thank you.

I am going to keep you in my

I am going to keep you in my prayers sister, for I know that kind of situation, my court date is 12/4/12 and we were just there on 3/15/12 but my ex-hate tours me does not stop from trying to take my 8 year old son from me even when he knows how close we are to each other and it will hurt him a lot if he gets him. But we need to hold on to God's promises sister that He will never leaves nor forsake us. Jeremiah 29:11 His got the perfect plan for you and your boys plans to prosper you and not to harm you or them some for my son and I, plans for a better future and we could even imagine. I know that our human part gets us to fear, but Jesus left us with His helper the Awesome! Holy Spirit that is more powerful than the fears satan brings into our lives, I know when I put on the DC's I been bless with and Praise! Him! with all my heart His power is right there with me and nothing can touch me. So remember He is faithful even when we are not, He loves you and your boys way more than you and I could ever love Him.
God Bless you, sis with His love, Helen :)

HI Annie, I prayed for you

HI Annie,

I prayed for you that you'll get the custody over your children. I may not have gone through the same situation, but from my experience, God can turn bad things into good. You may go through a difficult time right now, but be patient and faithful coz God will bless you with things far better than you have wished for yourself.

Did I not tell you that if you believed, you will see the glory of God - John 11:40
