Wonderful news today!! My youngest daughter took her 4 kids and moved out of her abusive husbands home and in with her father while she awaits finalization on a town home for them. Its been a long six years, but it looks like she finally has found her strength. She has support from all her family and friends and we will be there for her through it all. She called me in tears yesterday wanting to know if it was true if she took the kids with her he could have her arrested. My first question was are you leaving the state? He answer no, just going to dads until my townhouse comes through. I said no he can't he's using the kids to try to control you. He's got felony records and she has none. I told her the courts side with the mother 99% of the time, and he's got felony's for violation of no contact orders and abuse. No way is the court going to give the kids to him over her when she's the one supporting them and he hasn't had a job in over a year. So put Nancy in your prayer chains that she stays strong through this rough time in her life.

Thanks
Diane

In my prayers. Not easy being without a helpmate, but much better for her and the kids. Family support will be a boost for her. Proud she had strength to say enough is enough. There will be rough patches but she will make it.

Sending an Angel to watch over your daughter and her kiddies.
I pray she has the strength to stay away from him and he leaves her alone so they can both move on with their lives.

I have been in her situation and it is a very tough and scary thing to do, I hope the whole family gets behind her and there are some strong males in your family who can protect her if she should need it. I had no-one and police were always too slow turning up when I needed them, I had many black eyes and terrifying confrontations, I will pray that she doesn't.
Huge hugs and sincere best wishes for her and the children to have a wonderful future.

I admire your daughter's strength. Speaking from experience, I know how difficult it is to leave an abusive relationship. Also speaking from experience, the courts do not always side with the mother. My ex was a falling down, mean drunk with a history of violence and no job but was given half-custody and just told not to drink in front of the child--a rule that he could not follow. Because none of his drinking buddies would testify against him and a young child could not, he was allowed to continue with custody even as his alcohol-related health declined. She must find the strength to fight hard. It will be a difficult battle. My prayers for strength are with her and her family.

Good for her!!!!
I will be praying for her, specially for safety. She needs to be very careful. Abusiveness often means no control over the persons anger.
