Good evening, if you are suffering from domestic violence you can make application for a non molestation order and the father will not be allowed near you and the child.
It would not be indefinitely if later down the line he wanted contact with the child if there is a safeguarding issue then he would likely be given contact with the child supervised.
Have you reported the abuse?
It you reported to the police unfortunately it does not guarantee full custody the matter would be investigated but the father may not be deprived of contact going forward.
He has parental responsibility but if the child is danger then would need to be reported.
