hello.for a legal way you need a lawyer and not a doctor.even if he has a bipolar disorder his drinking is worsening his case and complicating his problems.

if he is willing to listen to you then get him examined by a psychitrist which can only cure his problems.

if he is violent then you have to look for other methods of controlling it and then look for his treatment.

all the best.
