    My ex partner was abusive, as a result I left without my son because my ex convinced me that I couldn’t look after him because I have mental health issues because of the abuse I suffered but at the time I thought is was just because of me. He now has my son and I’m wanting to get custody of my son. Has anyone got any experience of getting their child/children back from an abusive ex? I’m really wanting to find out a bit more of what to expect when I take my ex to court. I have a solicitor but they aren’t doing much yet. Any help would be great

    So sorry to hear what you’re going through.

    I would recommend contacting the domestic abuse charities: Woman’s Trust, who are excellent and Advance in Hammersmith. They helped me through my Domestic Abuse court case. Their view is that children are also abused in domestic abuse situations so if you believe your son is at risk you could contact social services and they may help too.

    Best of luck 😊

    Thank you, I have done so already I’m working with a domestic abuse worker and I have contacted social services because sadly my son is known to them, I have called everyone I can think of, I have a solicitor but to be honest they are useless, they never let me know what’s happening I am trying to get a new one. I have explained that my ex took my son away to punish me it feels like my son is his meal ticket the money he gets for my son doesn’t get spent on him. Every time I speak to my son his dad is there. My worry is that my ex will get into another relationship and do it all over again he has already had a relationship but the person he was with has experienced domestic abuse so kicked him out. My poor son is moved from pillar to post and these new partners come and go he needs a stable home life something I am now able to give him. It’s just going to be a long time. I’m also worried that my son will want to live with his dad because his dad will have groomed him into saying it.
