it is going to take a lot of faith and will power. I too was married to a mentally abusive husband, but at the time i left i was just recovering from having a fourth child and had no means of support. As much as i did not want to ask for public assistance(welfare) i took what i could get until i could better my situation. I did not allow myself to feel bad about leaving and i went to chucrh to help ease the pain. my husband would always tell me how no one was going to want a woman with four children and that i would be all alone and other things that he thought would lower my self esteem, yet i am now doing much better WITHOUT HIM and he's the one that is miserable. Believe in who you are. god has called us all for a special purpose in life and you should not allow someone else to let you miss out on being you! I hope that you believe in yourself because your children do! ctr Contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for assistance or visit the website and click on "Get Help".

How can one leave their mentally abusive spouse and not have to worry about losing their 2 kids to the spouse?

If you can prove that he's been mentally abusive (statements and letters from friends or family would help) then it would be up to a judge to decide whether the children should be subjected to a mentally abusive father. By the way, there are some who believe that allowing children to witness the physical or mental abuse between parents is actually a form of child abuse.

If your husband is being abusive and you tell him that you're going to kill him if he doesn't let go are you being abusive?

People tend to say things in anger. Since your husband is abusive you should consider going to a Woman's Abuse House to find help and learn tools to cope. No one has the right to abuse the other. Your relationship is toxic and you are in control of your life and not your husband. To tell him you are going to kill him is a serious accusation and when you get to this point it's time for you to leave this abusive relationship.

WARNING! THERE ARE MISS SPELLINGS IN HERE!!! You just sneek in the night and go to the police station and report what he has done to you, and show them the bruises. You have your child give a testomony to the police about what the father has done, and you give a testomony too. You then fight for his perintal rights to be taken away too. And when you go to remarry then look for these signs of an abusive man: > He likes to control you. > He doesn't trust you. >

What are the financial responsibilities of the abuser if the abused wants to remain in the home?

What a strange question! If the abused is afraid to leave the home for financial reasons, he or she should leave anyway. An abusive husband or father will still be required to support his wife or children, even if they do not live in his home. Basically, finances are not an issue in this case. If someone is being abused, that is the issue to get help for.
