    I have been separated for 18 months from a psychologically abusive ex. He is pushing for my 2 children aged 11 and 10 to have regular overnight stays. My 11 year old suffers from anxiety due to his dads behaviour and both can only bear to be with him for 3 hours a week. My ex is manipulative, a social worker and come across well to others, but is very narcissistic and practices coercive control on myself and the children. Basically the children do not want to spend any more time with him and certainly not overnight.

    I am frustrated at the moment because I am being told different things by my solicitor, safeguarding and domestic abuse support systems of the implications of refusing overnight stays. My ex will probably take me to court and from stories I have heard I do not have a lot of faith as a woman in  family court system.

    Has anyone had any similar experiences?
