Me and my ex-husband verbally agreed on split weeks for the children. It's been a rough four years. My children have been lashing out at school and home. I see the signs of emotional abuse and the domestic abuse. I reported it and still nothing is being done. My children are both in counseling for suicidal thoughts plus much more. I am trying to explain to the courts that something is wrong. And they don't believe me. My son recently told me that his father was threatening to blow his own head off during the summer. Also because our 6 year old is having so much trouble in school their father has taken our son to the doctors and they put him on Focaliln meds for ADHD in one day at seeeing the doctor. I tryed to explain to them he hit me when we were together and he is hurting the girlfriend that he is with now. I have since put my self in counseling becuase I fear for my children and have no one else to talk to. I have talked to family and they are trying to help but I don't want to upset them more than I have too I am trying to be strong. My daughter 11 says she won't say anything for fear that her father will hurt himself. And would never call the cops becuase they won't do anything any way.I feel so helpless.

I am so sorry to hear of your struggles. Since your agreement is verbal and not legal you do have resources available to you. I have attached the information to request an order of emergency custody. This can be done through social services to provide you with the lawyer that you need to ensure your children's safety.

~You can also contact Child Protective Services in your area and explain the custody, domestic violence and counseling.They have a great deal of pull to get the ball rolling to get your children removed from the scheduled visits to their father's care. Be sure you are prepared in every way to have the children with you and support their emotions during this struggle. good luck.

they say the best thing you can do in an abusive situation is get out? I spit on see the signs. org especially if you see the signs, tell them and they don't believe you.
