I had to face my ex is court to get an occupation order.  My barrister requested a screen for me, so i didn’t have to see my ex.  I wasn’t questioned by him, but his solicitor. She did try to weaken me by saying the abuse i had reported wasn’t true and that i was a liar.  It really was such a horrible experience, but certainly not as bad as living with the abuse!

All you can do is tell the truth and they will see through him.  My ex showed his true colours that day in court; he couldn’t contain his temper and so showed the judge exactly what i had been putting up with.

Good luck, and well done for standing up to the bully!
