Need advice, about domestic violence, leaving the state and taking your kids w/you.
Good morning ladies.
I will try to explain my situation in a few words.
I've suffered from domestic violence for the past 6 years.I have always been a working mom, no drugs, no alcohol, no parties, went to college, and most of all a good mom and my daughter says that she always wants to stay with me.
I have decided to take my daughter and leave the house. Husband knows but since he is emotionally unestable and an alcoholic one day he says "get out of my house", the next day he says "take our baby" and then the other day he says "you won't take her, I will take her with me".
We live in the same state at the moment, have been here for 3 years. He is in the military, he Might get his orders to move next summer, we don't know where yet.
He says he will take my daughter with him and I can find a place to live somewhere else. He says I can't provide so I can't take my daughter.
My sister lives in Florida, we have made a plan, I want to move with her (she has a nice house they are wealthy people ) just for a couple months, then with my savings get a place to stay and find a job. With the help of God I am sure it will work out.
But my husband says that he won't let me go because he doesnt want my daughter to be a guest and that she needs her own tv?? yes, that's what he said.
So here I am, wondering what can I do. I am so scared that he will try to take my daughter next summer, I dont want to start the divorce process here because I will have to stay here for two more years and I have no fmily nothing here in VA.
So please can anyone tell me what to do? anything will help. Now I was thinking, he verbally abuses me every day and night and most of the time he is drunk, so next time I was going to call the police and actually get them to arrest him, that way I can say hey I don't feel safe here so I will grab my car and leave. would that be ok? help!!!
