    I have been married for 3 years to my partner who was abusive to me in all forms except sexual. I suffered trauma so has my 2 year old son. There were lots of police and social services involvement in my life because of numerous domestic incidents. My spouse denies his abusive behaviour and doesn’t want to change anything. I am planning on a divorce. I have non molestation order and prohibited steps order in place now till next year. My spouse made an application to the court for spend time with order, so now Cafcass would get involved. Realistically I feel I am the one raising my child and doing what every parent is expected to do. From financial perspective I am not working, and I rely on public funds. Father of the child only sends me £10 weekly which is a joke. He is unemployed however has a massive amount of savings in his bank. I dont understand how not working can stop him from supporting the child financially. Funny thing is he wanted me to give him another chance to talk and make relationship work, although theres been continuous complaints on how miserable his life was since he met me and that I was the one abusive, not him. Major factor to breaking of this marriage was lack of trust and respect was never there. I dont see myself with my partner anymore. The only thing I am concerned about is the child contact arrangements and how its going to play out. I much rather that my son stays with me and I remain his main carer. I got my own solicitor who represents my case so I am hoping he can help me achieve the outcome I am looking for to ensure ongoing safety for myself but especially my child.
