Coparenting with your abuser

My ex husband remains controlling and it keeps me in a big stressed ptsd mode. He seems to do everything possible to make my life difficult including calling the police with grossly exaggerated claims. I’ve seen lawyers throughout the years, but he knows not to ‘legally’ threaten me. I feel terrorized.
anyone else have to deal with coparenting their abuser?

  • @ern... I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this. I can only imagine how difficult and traumatic it is for you. I have no experience in dealing with this kind of situation, but I hope someone who does will weigh in.

    Big hugs to you.
  • @ern hey there. Sorry you have to go through that. I have not experience d that. Seems like there should be a way to make this stop.... the police wont do anything?
  • @dominica the only time police have intervened is when he crosses the legal line with direct threats or harassment, which he usually knows how to play well. He was always on his best behavior when social services has stepped in to observe him and he reverts soon after they close his file.
    I found a family therapist for my boys and I, so I’m hoping that helps.
  • @ern yes, I do hope that helps. I think it will.
  • @ern... I'm really happy to hear that you found a family therapist for you and your boys. That's a very positive step and I'm proud of you for taking it.
