Middle of Bad Divorce

Amber - posted on 01/15/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




I have a 5 week old daughter named avery. I left my husband back in march and when I came home found out I was pregnant. I left my husband because he was abusive mentally, emotionally, and physically and I couldn't handle it. I'm still in the middle of my divorce because he wants visition and to take my daughter 2 and half hours away for every visitation. I'm trying to fight for at least decreased visitiation because I don't trust him and don't want him to do to avery the things he did to me. My court date is Jan 27th. Want to know if anyone else is out there in the same boat or has any tips...most days I feel like I'm the only one out there in a situation like this...would be nice to know there are others out there and to be able to talk to someone.

Amber, it seems that you got more than you bargained for. I can understand but, you have to remember the law and rights of both parents. Nothing is valid without documentation and or witnesses. Do a search if you haven't already on laws and rights where you are located. We all have our own issues and problems and this is just one that your going to have to deal with. What I do suggest is to try to distance yourself from the father as much as possible. There should be little or no contact unless it is a matter of life or death. Remember the more you distance yourself the better it can be (my opinion). A few more days until court pray and try not to worry yourself so much. 9 times out of 10 if something happens to us (adults) it normally doesn't happen to the kid but be very cautious about your kid(s) I hope this helps you in one way or another

do you have any way to prove that he did those things to you? if you do then you can take it to court to prove why he shouldnt have visitation. some times the court will let you meet half way. im sorry that you are goin thru this hope this helps out
