  • I have never been through this but good for you!! I know it is hard for many domestic violence victims to get help and I think you are extremely brave for doing so!

  • Try not to be nervous, I have been in a domestically violent relationship but never turned him in for it (was too scared to do so) but kudos to you for standing up for yourself and getting the justice you deserve!! He will pay for what he has done!!

  • Don't be nervous and take a deep breath I will be keeping a good thought for you. My friend went through this and in the end she was glad to have done it.

  • Wishing you all of the luck in the world, be strong!! You are doing the right thing, he needs to be punished. Be kind to yourself, and don't let anything he says get to you.

  • Good for you! Stand up and be strong! There are too many women in violent relationships too afraid to do something about it. So many women have died in this way, and kids too. Be glad you got out- I am! I hope you can recover from the emotional scars he left behind. Kudos to you for showing your kids what a strong woman looks like :)
