I recently left my SO because of abuse. I filed a complaint with the police and they said that that was all I could do at that time because it didn't happen right then. The next day I got a TRO, CPS is now investigating him. I just got a call saying I can press charges over the last fight that we had. Should I do it? or would I be better off leaving it be? I am still afraid of him, and constantly think about him and his feelings.Answer Question

Uh,yes. You went through all that trouble why would you back out now? I've found that cops, lawyers and judges have become very calloused to domestic violence specifically because people will report something and then not file charges,drop them or not testify. If he abused you, you need to continue.
