  • Usually you can get an advocate?? They will help you, tell anyone what he said, and how scared you are. If you have to talk to social services about your worries.

  • I think you could get an order of protection now. you may want to get an attorney if you can afford it.

  • I posted too soon- If you have to talk to social services about your worries, then do so. Make sure they know how scared you are not just for yourself but for your lil one.

  • fight, fight, fight. use any documentation, and any witnesses who will testify against him. if he does end up getting visitation, demand that is is supervised and in a public place where he is less likely to hurt her. good luck, you are in my prayers.

  • ria7 is right, apply for an order of protection. again and again...I don't know if they have a set amount of time for when you can apply for one.

  • You probably can but you should have back then so he wouldn't be doing what he is trying to now.
