What are my chances for custody?

My ex is verbally abusive to me and in the past was verbally abusive in front of our children. He also threatened to commit suicide with our children asleep upstairs, he went into the bathroom and when i found him he was unconscious. I called the police and they took him to a mental hospital where they found meth, cocaine, and marijuana in his system. He is constantly harassing me and keeps threatning me about taking the children away. I had a verbal agreement with him to move out of state and the day i was leaving he put four dents in my car and broke two head lights because he could not borrow my car. Now i am seeking a lawyer for low cost. WIll i have a chance at getting full custody in my situation of being out of state?

I really don't know if out of state will effect your custody battle. I guess it would depend on how long you have been out of state and where the original custody agreement was filed.

I think that the circumstances revolving around the children's father is favorable to you. It sounds like he may not be fit to be a full time father based on drug use and violence.
