Everywhere is different. I had the shit kicked out of me and my ex bf punched me in the face when we were in the car. The police pulled him over and said someone called to report it and just told him not to do it again.

If courts don't take it any further though then it can just leave women and kids even more vulnerable. I'd recommend OP go somewhere safe first, taking important documents and some stuff for them and things that are special.

Are there any women's shelters or safe houses in your area?

Have you tried calling all the ones you can find? Do you know anyone you could stay with at all? Or anyone you could borrow money from to rent a place until you get a job and/or welfare/aid of some kind? Or do you have anything you could sell so you could do that yourself (like wedding rings :twisted: )
