I have an ex spouse who is a lawyer and he has used the maximum allowed by prescription for 2 years. I had difficulty leaving him because i have 5 kids and no resources. He even said he didn’t want to make money because I would leave if he did, as I would have the means to do so. I finally left as he was getting so bad and now I am struggling severely to make it on my own. Even worse, because of his law degree, he spends a lot of time using his degree as a lawyer to threaten me, has drawn things out even longer.
Meanwhile the kids are suffering because he will do things such as threaten me if i don’t take them to his apt. He refuses to get a vehicle that all of the kids can fit in, and it is another method of control. Because of his knowledge and use of the system, and he can be a great litigator, it is difficult to get away from his mental abuse. He also is addicted to online war games and instills those habits into kids when they are there.
