I am a mother of two sons, ages 3yr 11mo and 5yr 9 mo. I am divorced from my children's bio father. I am remarried, however my husband works out of town 3 states away. I am currently in litigation with my ex-husband (boys' father) because my children have displayed signs of abuse as well as made accusations against an older step-brother in their father's home, as well as made reports of psychological, physical, and sexual abuse against their father. However, since custody is an issue-there is no simple way to remove my children from their father's home. I live in the town where their father grew up and as such have no support network. I am basically fighting this battle on my own. I am exhausted and feel completely alone. In addition I am diagnosed with PTSD from my own traumatic upbringing and from the seven years I was in an abusive relationship with their father. I need support. Please help.
