I am at a tail end of a divorce and my soon to be ex husband is destroying me and my children emotionally. I live in a very small community and my ex and soon to be ex in laws are so deeply tied in with law enforcement and county officials. I've worked so hard for the past 9 years to be the best stay at home mom I could be. We share one child together, my youngest..a beautiful 5 year old girl, and I have an older son through a previous relationship. He has done everything from strip away all of our marital assets, filled for full custody of BOTH children, had me arrested for something absolutely obsurd, and has continously stalked and harassed us on a daily basis. I've been through two attorneys and two years worth of hell. I finally had enough. I decided to move out of state in hopes that I can provide a better, healthier, life for my two kids. He refused to let me take my daughter. My child has expressed to her law guardian how much she wants to move with us but of course the law guardian sided with my spouse. It is getting down to the wire and moving time is soon. I hold so much guilt. I fear even with significant visitation my daughter will grow up and resent me. I'm not the type of mother to stop fighting, I always will for my child but my emotions are running wild. I know what I'm doing is right as our new home, job, and schooling is better for my kids. I'm really struggling emotionally with being away from her. The only thing, the only thinggggg that is getting me by is knowing I am crawling an inch at a time out of this hell. Is there anyone who can offer any positivity? I would greatly appreciate it.
