I was in a relationship with my x for nine years. I was sexual, emotionally and physically abused. I was stocked and brainwashed by my x. We were married for a short period of time with two children. When we got divorced I was under the impression that I received 50/50 custody. I never reported anything and kept very quiet about the abuse. I was sheltered from the real world and I think I may have some social problems now from the abuse. My x has had sole legal and physical custody sense we got our divorce. I was with him until this past year. After splitting up from my x he has threatened me many times many different ways. I went into the court house and applied for a DVRO. Despite what everyone told me I received my DVRO. I went up against my x and his two lawyers all by myself. Now I am trying to get my children back from him. He is trying to make himself look like he's changed (i.e. not partying, spending more time at home with the kids, quitting his gang, etc.) I am scared that the judge wont grant me custody and charge me of abandonment. Please help.

While reading your story, I felt like watching a movie. This is really sad and life changing experience of yours. I hope you get the custody for you kids. Heterosexual females in households where both partners work experience domestic abuse more often than do unemployed females
who stay at home, according to new research. In reality, they do so more than two times as often.
