I am in a custody battle with my ex, he was very abusive when we were together, he picked up my daughter for the day and then asked if I would come get her so I got in the car and went to leave and found that my breaks weren't working. When I took my car to the mechanics. They said my breaks had been cut like with a knife. My ex works on cars for a living. I know he did this. What do I do? How do I prove it? I'm so afraid for my life now. I guess it's good that he at least waited to do it until he had my daughter so she wasn't in the car... I need help!!

I responded to your other post and you absolutely must file a police report. If you don't it will not be considered into evidence. When your brake line is changed the police will take the old one into evidence. Can you park in a garage? If not, when your brake line is cut you will find a large pool of brake fluid under your car. Also, your brakes will not work and your warning light will come on. Cutting the brake line is not like in the movies where the car is careening out of control, rather the brake pedal will push to the floor since there is no brake fluid to pressurize the line. It is still a huge hassle, disables your vehicle and is costly to repair. You would have to pay for a tow, and new lines to be put in and that adds up. Lock you car, leave you outside lights on, and talk to your neighbors about keeping an eye on the premises.

If your brakes were cut you should file a police report. The mechanic can confirm that they were cut. You may not be able to prove that the ex is the one that cut them, but it will start a paper trail of suspicion.

There should already be a police report on file (assuming you called) if the girlfriend actually threatened to kill you. All of these acts... no matter how big or small... should be documented immediately.

Besides that he hates me and his new girlfriend has threatened to kill me And my daughter, if I die, he automatically gets full custody of our 6 month old daughter.
