Re: What to do? I Could REALLY use some advice....

I think the first thing you need to do is get advice. Learn all your rights, options and everything you can about family law as it will apply to you. Find out what assistance may be available to you, what measures you can legally take to assist you. Look for jobs, not so much for now, but find out what may be available to youwhen you separate. You may find that you are able to leave and set yourself up, you must also find out what rights you have about him leaving the family home. If you cannot prove abuse, then you may not be able to force him to leave, I am not sure about the laws there. Start your research, you can accomplish quite a lot before you need to confront him. Others on this forum will have excellent advice about all this stuff, read back in other postings about abusive partners and leaving home. Thinking of you, Sera
