what now?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Domestic Violence Accounts : One Thread

In 1999, I left my abusive husband...he stalked and harassed us and then in 2001 my son told me horror tales of the physical, psychological and sexual abuse he received at the hands of my now ex-husband. I moved myself and two children out of state after having my ex's visitation revoked to only 10 min telephone calls every other week. My ex continued to look for me and was able to find out where we were through the District Attorney child support division. He immediately went to court and filed for custody. I was contacted by the child abduction unit, and they flew us back to CA. I have recorded history of the abuse as well as police reports. My son is terrified to be back here, and my ex has gotten the judge to grant supervised visitations with my 7 year old daughter. I don't know where to turn, I am back in a battered women's shelter and they are at a loss as well. He is using the legal system to continue the abuse. I am fearful for our lives and well being. He has started questioning our daughter about our whereabouts. This is not considered illegal...I don't know what to do...this is alot of presure for all of us. I would like some direction or ideas on what to do...I already left state and laid low but we were found...I am scared to death of what my ex is capable of...Please help

Pray; sometimes when it seems we have no way out, God will make a way- get on your knees and pray- ask Him to remove your ex from your life.
