Does anyone have any firsthand experience with lodging a Notice of Abuse, Family Violence and/or Risk with the Family Court? Specifically with emotional/psychological abuse? I am wanting to file but concerned it is going to expose my children to even more mess and potentially having to deal with child services only to have the whole thing thrown back in my face because emotional abuse is hard enough to prove as an adult, let alone as a child.
I have tried unsuccessfully to prove emotional abuse and have to warn you against it which I hate to say as I know how horrible it is. If I had my time again, I would have got more proof with emails and even recorded phone calls. But I can’t face it all again. I found it was more powerful to try and move on from it in the end.
Very hard to get evidence together for emotional abuse it n front on a judge…with out looking like your sabotaging the other parents rights….be careful there..unless you have hard evidence of physical abuse, drugs or alcohol abuse not fit for parenting your wasting your time and money ..
I experienced it, but I run away to woman refuge with my kids so I get suport from the support worker about court orders,Restraining order. but its nothing can changed, he still keep abusive toward me verbaly and emotionaly until now even we been separated for so long. Move on ,minimazed the contact is best way that we can do
