I separated from my husband just before lockdown after he blew up at my eldest and tried to throw her out and I’m so relived that we did separate then, if we had been together through lockdown this it would of ended up worse.
I’m now going through the battle of divorce, him expecting to get 50/50 custody of our daughter and the financial horror that goes with it all.
I feel so lonely and desperate, I don’t really have that many close friends and I don’t want to burden my family with it all but right now I’m scared as to what will happen with our daughter. He hasn’t been a good dad before the split and he’s only looked after our daughter when it’s been convenient to him since. I’ve done all the home schooling whilst still working full time from home but none of this seems to be taken into consideration. I will be constantly worried for her care if she does have to go for overnight stays with him.
Hi there, i’m in a similar situation. I would get some advice from a solicitor (half hour free) or speak to Citizen’s Advice. Some times just talking to someone who can help get these things in order, will take some of the weight off your mind.
Or get in touch if you fancy a chat or want to rant.
I’m am going through everything with a solicitor but it’s all so daunting and costly 🙁
My daughter is 8 and she’s such a happy little thing but I have noticed that she can be very huggy recently and occasionally asks to sleep in my bed which I didn’t mind at first as it felt reassuring for her after her Dad had left but now I try to distract her from doing it and making her room cosy and her own private get away.
