If you are almost 16 can you refuse visitation with your verbally and emotionally abusive father?
You should be able to ask the judge who presided over the divorce, or if there is a caseworker assigned to the family, that would be a better place to start. More Opinions

If you are in a verbally and emotionally abusive marriage can you just take your daughter and go to another state?
No, you don't need to go to another state. Just get out of where you live- taking your child with you- contact any women's protective shelter in your area and they'll take it from there. If you don't know of any shelters, go to the local police. They know. If, you feel your life is in danger and …going to the next state is the only way you feel safe then GO, worry about the rest later. Don't go anywhere you have taken him before. Go somewhere he is not going to look right away. Accidentally on purpose leave a piece of paper that he thinks is a clue as to where you were going. Cousin that you don't see very often "or something that makes him feel smart" and that he will follow . This will give you more time to head in the opposite direction. ( Full Answer )
What can you do when an abusive father threatened you to give up custody and now refuses to follow the court order to give you visitation rights and any placement?
Answer You are a mother ... fight!!!!! You can seek out legalcounsel and go to court to fight for the rights of your children.If your ex has any record of abuse against you or your children (orboth) you can fight this in a court of law and get either partialor hopefully full custody of your child(re…n). If you can't affordlegal counsel then seek out your local Women's Abuse Centers (youcan go to Mental Health or your local law enforcement agency andask them where these centers are) and fight through them. They havepeople who will help you fight for your rights in court to get yourchildren back .......... OR When your ex keeps forcing you to giveup custody he is breaking the law! Seek out legal advice and ifnecessary (and you have proof) go to the media for help. Peopledon't take kindly to any man (or woman) being abusive with theother partner or children involved.

If, he will go away, then do it the way below. Otherwise, remove yourself for the safety of your child. The other stuff will resolve over time. Call the police and have him arrested for assault and battery. Call protective services and notify them of your endangerment and they will come and remov…e him or if you can remove yourself to a safe place [friend's house, relative etc] do it now. no reason to endanger yourself more than what is already done. Your question hits home for me, I was 9 months pregnant when the "father" abused me, I went to the hospital and I was there for 6 hours, my son was fine thank god he is now 10 months old and as cute as ever, but he had to work in the afternoon when I got home he was at work, I called his work and told them to tell him not to come home and his stuff will be waiting, he came and got it and thank god that was the last I seen of him, I did report it to the police, that's what you need to do, GET PROOF THEN CALL THE POLICE, they will tell you to get a protective order, but you need to keep him away from the baby when its born, who knows if he will hurt the child if he will hurt you while you're carrying the child. Take him to court do all that you can to protect your baby. Message me if you need any advise or someone to talk to about it, I was there! I am now a 22 year old single mother, but so happy to get rid of him. Get out now, it does not matter what you take, the coffee pot or what ever what you will get out with now is self respect he will not change let me repeat he will not change, I have been there guess what I have stayed there for 30 years I am now 47 years old and hate him more now than I did then but now I will not leave because I will not leave the things I worked for how dumb. they are all things I should of left 29 years ago ,,LEAVE NOW I was 7 months pregnant when my husband (live-in boyfriend at the time) became physically violent with me. He would tell me that he was going to take my baby away from me and that I was going to be an "unfit" mother and that no court in their right mind would give me custody of my baby. I knew that Adam was emotionally abusive to me but like statistics point out, most abusers become physically violent when their wife is pregnant. After the birth of our daughter, he would still threaten to take my daughter away from me. I knew that he was trying to scare me but the thought of my daughter not having her mom and her dad in her life made me sick. I did not want my family to be a "statistic." I grew up in a happy, healthy home where my parents are happily married. The abuse only got worse and so I convinced him to move back home to WI so that we could be closer to family and friends. I still stayed. It wasn't until the teachers that I worked with were tired of seeing my bruises that they had called my family to move me and my daughter out. They showed up one evening with their husbands and moved us out. I did not want to leave but I know now what they were seeing and how terrible things really were. There is life after the abuser...this is something that I'm still working on. It has been almost two years since our separation/divorce. I could not of done it on my own. My advice to you: don't listen to ANY of his threats. Tell the people that you work with, tell your family...tell ANYONE that will listen! They will help you get out! Again, I don't think that I could have done it on my own! YOU WILL BE OKAY!!! It has been almost two years and I'm still working on getting over the abuse but I am confident that I WILL be okay and I will eventually find someone who treats me and my daughter well. Good luck to you, the sooner you get out the better! Also: something to think about: I married Adam after we had our daughter . I would have gotten primary placement & custody. I still have her for primary placement but we do have joint custody as this is how WI law works. Educate yourself and get a good attorney and be ready to fight for your child! I did and it paid off! If you can't afford an attorney, look into applying for something called Judacare (available through your local government/county center.) My thoughts and prayers are with you. Oh! One last thing: document, document, document...take pictures, show the police, show people! The more documentation, you have, the less likely he will be able to get your baby! All you have 2 do is call the police and press charges and get a restraining order. ( Full Answer )
Why would you call someone who is "emotionally and verbally abusive" - your "friend"? Abusers cannot be friends because they lack empathy and the ability to truly love someone else or relate to others!
It's difficult to do that. I have the same issue, but I can't move out, I don't have money to do it and I'm still in high school, unable to get a driver's license or anything. Try saving up and getting a job and means of transportation. Then pick out an apartment that you can move into, but make sur…e you will be able to afford that plus utilities, food, etc. More than likely, you'll be stuck with being there, at least for a while. I've learned to just block it, the only problem with that is that I can't unblock my emotions. However, I can't feel the pain anymore. Anytime he starts with something like, you're an idiot, or you're useless, think of something different, or reverse it onto him, anytime he calls you that, contradict him in your head. Don't even listen to what he has to say, it's not important. To the person who wrote the original answer, it's different to have a parent do that that a boyfriend or girlfriend, you don't even realize there's something wrong with it until they show those videos in school because that's all you know. I'm actually pretty lucky, I don't let it affect me, other than lacking emotions. I don't have low self-esteem or anything. You just have to make sure that you list everything good about you, and don't even look at what's wrong. More than likely anything your father tells you is a lie, and don't let it become the truth.

Is it common for a verbally emotionally abusive parent to continue to abuse after the child becomes an adult?
yes it is they dont know how to break the cycle. Answer . That's very true. At times, they may not even recognize their actions for what they really are. Other times, the parents may continually need that power over the child - they need the assumed importance or replacement for something they f…eel they lack. More often than not, it is the child who will have to be a strong enough person to cut the ties and realize that they do not deserve this treatment - parent or not, no one has the right to be abusive to someone else.

Answer . Abuse, whether it's verbal or physical, is all about controlling the partner. A controlling partner is an abusive partner. They may control various parts of the victims's life:\n. \n*the victim's schedule, and the need to "check in" or "report" to the abuser at various times\n. \n* th…e victim's attempts to express her disatisfaction. The abuser will attempt to control the situation by comments, "I'm not talking about this," "That's not what you said/did/felt about it," ignoring the victim, sulking, pouting, physical threats, throwing objects, etc. \n. \n* the victim's feelings of responsibility. The abuser will say at some points,"You make me feel good," and at others,"You make me feel bad/hate you/want to hurt you/treat you like this." The abuser makes the person feel responsible for all his behavior.\n. \n* who the victim can talk to: her friends, her family, co-workers, total strangers. The abuser tries to control what the victims says to those people as well.\n. \n*the victim's finances and independence--the abuser will withhold money from the victim, give the victim an allowance, or not allow a victim to seek employment so she can have her own money. \n. \n*Self esteem. Through criticisms and belittling, the abuser can diminish and control the victims's confidence in her skills, her intelligence, her body image. "You're not smart/pretty enough," "You think you're actually going to be able to do that?" "You should be glad someone like me wanted to date you,". \n. \nIf you're with someone who behaves in a controlling manner, the best thing you can do is end the relationship, no matter how difficult it seems.

How can a 16-year-old move out of the family home and into a safe environment when their father is being verbally abusive?
Answer . \nState departments of social services or family and children's services handle such issues.\n. \nThe best option for the minor is to obtain assistance from a trusted adult such as a teacher, coach, minister, etc.\n. \nAlthough verbal abuse is not acceptable under any circumstances it…'s legal definition is narrowly defined.\n. \nThat being the case, a judge generally does not (often cannot) order any action to be taken other than family counseling. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nYou should talk to an adult in your family such as grandparents or an aunt. If your relatives don't live close then you can talk to your school counselor or a priest or pastor. You can also go to Child Welfare on your own and put in a complaint. It will be investig…ated and depending on the findings you could become a ward of the court and put into foster care.\n. \nGood luck!\n. \n. \n . \n Unfortunately, social services in the US does not consider verbal and emotional abuse a legal issue.\n. \nState agencies that handle such matters would suggest family counseling but would take no further action unless the child or children had been neglected, physically abused.\n. \nBecause all such agencies private and public are understaffed and underfunded their resources are extremely limited in what action can be taken when the issue is not one of physical abuse or child endangement.\n. \nIf a child believes themselves or other family members to be in danger of immediate physical harm they should call 911 for assistance.\n. \nIt is the moral duty of everyone to report abuse of children, physically or mentally disabled, elderly or indeed any person who is incapable of helping themselves.\n. \nNational Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-422-4453 or 1-800-252-2873\n. \nNational Youth Crisis Services, 1-800-448-4463\n. \nTeenline Online, http://www.teenlineonline.org, A website staffed by trained teens to aid young people in finding assistance and solutions for their problems.

Answer . \nI just ended my abusive relationship with a Narcissist. I do feel sorry for him, because he is mentally ill. Because he will never be able to love in a normal sense. But I am really trying not to confuse that with the fact that he is a dangerous person to those of us who can love nor…mally. I have a lot of work to do finding out who I am and what I want, and while it is perfectly normal to help those who are willing to help themselves...there is no help for anyone who is a Narcissist, unless they are able to recognize it themselves. We do not help them by staying with them. Regret that they are sick individuals, that the relationship was so one-sided, that you gave up so much of yourself to someone who you really could not help....but DO move on. You can love normally, God wants that for you, and he wants you to have someone who can love you back. Don't be unevenly yoked to someone who can't see the light.\nGod Bless you,\nMbme ( Full Answer )
I think so. I went in one before after I charged my ex with assult. I told the staff that although I was not physically scared of him, I was more scared of myself. I did not trust myself to not go back to him. I was filled with so much of the effects of brainwashing that it took every ounce of stren…gth I had NOT to go back! It also was a great expereince as I learned about the cycle of violence and that it wasnt my fault. It also gave me a chance to meet other women who shared similar, very similar experiences. Furthurmore, he did not know where I was so it took the edge of wanting him back.The mistake I made though, was I began dating while at the shelter. I fooled myself into thinking another man would solve my problems. Even though I was well armed with knowledge on abuse and the whole cycle, I met an EVEN WORSE MAN!!!!! The next one got me at a time where I was very vunerable. Looking back I should of kept more close to the shelter and eased into life again. But I was full of zest and also alot of pain that I just rushed into another nightmare.A shelter is the best place for any abuse victim. You may even find that women that were physically abused will be shocked when you tell them the headgames and all the mind twisting stuff your partner has done. You will feel validated.

Sure, he's likely to get worse. Things won't get better unless you make it happen. Either leave him or make him go with you for marriage counseling. See where it goes from there.
Answer \n. \nIt may take awhile for her to realize what is happening and then another while for her to gather her nerve/energy to leave. The best you can do is to hear her out and offer her a non-judgmental place to talk about it. As stated below, you can also take her to an intake office, but i…t is best to do it under cover of some activity, so her husband has no idea where she is going. If you have a distinctive car, make sure to park out of sight of the roadway. I have been through this myself, and the counselors were very well equipped to help me move from my situation. Actually, they were better than friends since they weren't involved and had the boundaries to not become involved. If you can afford it, a week or so of vacation away from the abuser may also make the issue clearer to her--like a cruise or somewhere he cannot follow. In no case should she give him any idea that she plans to leave, or pack when he is home. The month surrounding a departure can be very dangerous for the victim. If possible, it would be better for her to go somewhere that he cannot find her or contact her until she gets her bearings. It is very rare that the abuser will permanently change his ways without the benefit of time and space.\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \nUnless she can see that the man she is with does not know the meaning of love there isn't much you can do. You can suggest you will back her 100% and make an appointment at the "Abused Women's Center" in your area. If you find it hard to find then just phone mental health. They will direct you. The Abused Women's Center will take your daughter into the counselor and go over her history. They are use to seeing tears, frustrations, fears and even the abuser threatening her or taking children away. This is what abuser do ... brain-wash their victim, take their independence and self esteem away and put the fear of God into them that the victim can't make it out on her own and no man would ever want her, plus, take the children away from her or even threaten to kill her or her family. There are counselors in the Abused Women's Centers that will go with her to court. You daughter will be put into a "Transition House" or "Safe House" where no one will know where she is with perhaps the exception of you and her counselor. There she will have to take programs which will give her the tools to get her self esteem back, learn not to choose the same abusive partners and most importantly not to go back to her abuser (which is common.) They will help her find work as well and get her on her feet.\n. \nIf she agrees with you then have her pack her bags (just the very essentials) and leave to come home when her abuser has gone to work. It's obvious he will either phone her with threats or possibly come to your home and if this happens call the police immediately and press charges!\n. \nDon't be surprised if your daughter says, "But I love him" because she will honestly believe this and also will believe he doesn't mean what he does (make excuses for his actions) or she can change him. If this is the case your daughter is an adult and there isn't much you can do about it. If your daughter and her abuser have children then you can report it to Children's Aid so at least the children are out of the abusive environment. Don't feel sorry for your daughter because if she chooses to stay there is no reason the children should have to live in such an environment. If the children are taken away from her and her abuser then she is more apt to try and help herself.\n. \nI wish you luck!\n. \nGod Bless\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf she is still in the relationship, get her to realize that she is worth much more than the abuser treats her. Bring her to sit ins for abused women and let her hear their stories and possibly gain strength to move on with her life in a more healthy way. The abuser will prey on her until she shows that she has the strength to get away from him. Listen to her, too, if she wants to talk, see how she feels, get her some self esteem books and bring her around positive people. Ive heard of alot of success if people like you go to the abuser with many others and denounce him and his ways, with her present and let him know that he will no longer be tolerated and is no longer welcome in "her" circle of strength. They are sad individuals, not to be pitied though because they are chosing to treat another person so indifferently for their own benefit. \nWe all need to ban together against abusers of any type and let them know this is not their world its everyones to share and if they dont know how, then they need to go.

How can you get your son back into his parents' lives when he has married an emotionally abusive girl and refuses to have anything to do with you?
Answer . Unfortunately there isn't much you can do. They are married and he seems to be trying to sort things out. It's between them. I know this is extremely hard for you because two of my girlfriends and their husbands are going through the same thing with their sons. One couple's son fina…lly saw the light (he was tired of it and hit bottom) and has since divorced his wife and moved on with his life, while the other couple's son is still trying in his marriage. Things can be good one time and not another time. Once again parents just have to sit back and let their child work things out on their own because that is no doubt how you have brought your son up. The worst thing you can do is "put down" his wife as it will put him on defensive and hat why he has refused to come and visit if there is always arguing or any name-calling towards her. Even though she is abusive there is one part of your son that still loves her and he wants to protect her and for now feels he can change her. Victims of abuse always feel they are part of the problem and can't believe it is the abusers fault 100%. The best you can do is open your home and hearts to be there for him and LISTEN! You could do some research from your local "Mental Health" and find out where the programs are for abused men. Then write down the information and simply hand it to your son and just say, "Whatever your choice is we love you and we'll be here for you." It appears he's being the man he should be and rest assured, in time, he will have been backed into a corner one too many times by his wife and WILL leave. I know it's tough being a parent, but you are going to have to search back on all the wise advice and good up-bringing you gave your son and now that he's a man let him start using some of those skills you taught him.\n. \nI would suggest that you talk to your husband and be on the same wave length, and ask your son and daughter-in-law to come for dinner. If you want to see your son then you and your husband must bite your tongues, be pleasant to your daughter-in-law (no matter what) and try to have a good time. This way your son sees you are trying to accept her into your lives, but secretly what you are doing is letting him see with his own eyes that she is incapable of getting along with anyone and she'll blow it. Let her hang HERSELF with her own rope.\n. \nGood luck & God Bless ( Full Answer )
Is an 8-year-old required to visit his father if he is being verbally abused and bordering on neglect in Louisiana?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYou MUST report this to either your mother or a trusted relative. If you have no one then phone the operator and ask for the number of "Children's Aid."\n. \nGood luck hon\n. \n. \n . In the US the terms of court ordered visitation must be adhered to by the custodial… parent, it is the non custodial parent's choice whether to use those visitation rights. \n . \nIf the custodial parent has valid proof that the minor child is being subjected to an environment that can be legally considered abusive or neglectful he or she should request an investigation by the state's department of child protective services. Or in lieu of such, the custodial parent can file suit to have the visitation order rescinded or amended. \n. \nVery rarely will the court refuse parental rights to visitation unless the circumstances are extreme. The court will most definitely not amend or rescind the order based solely on the testimony of the child and/or custodial parent or other family members. Most often when the claims are founded or there is sufficient evidence to cause suspicion the judge will not end the visitation rights of the non custodial parent but will instead order supervised visits.\n. \nA custodial parent who arbitrarily refuses court ordered visitation rights could be found in contempt and perhaps jeopardize his or her custodial status.

If you ran away, you would be breaking a incorribible law. Incorrigibility means the breaking of rules or laws that usually don't apply to adults, behaving in a manner that that could endanger self or others, and refusing to obey the reasonable orders or directions of parents and guardians.

HOWEVER you as a sixteen year old you can choose to become emancipated if you can support yourself. The way that this can occur depends upon the state you reside.

I would strongly suggest this if you have children---your kids will be affected by her behavior, even when it's not directed at them. Children are impacted by the abuse they witness between two adults. \n. \nThe most important thing to realize is that emotional abuse, like physical abuse, can both escalate and fluctuate over time. Your mother in law will not change her behavior, even if a police complaint was filed against her. Is your husband abusive to you or does he tolerate what is going on? If he is unwilling to acknowledge the behavior, he is ennabling the situation. \n. \nThe best thing you can do for yourself is to have as little contact with her as possible--even if it means not going to holidays or events where she will be present. Stand your ground on this matter. Do not try to pacify your mother in law--an abusive person sees this as submission and it does nothing to stop their actions. Do not argue or fight with her, either. Keep the focus on being healthy--eat right, get enough sleep, realize that this is *her* issue, not yours, and that you are not obligated to be in her company if she chooses to act this way.

But it's not an easy process, you also have to have your current guardian agree, but it is in the best interest of the child so you may just get moved.

This is a truly awful situation, but don't despair - many weaker people than you have made it through worse. First, you should talk to a trusted adult and see if they can help you find the answers you need. If you don't have a trusted adult outside home or school, then talk to your favorite te…acher or guidance counselor, or someone at your church if you have one. Any of those people SHOULD be able to help you find the help you need, if not then I'd recommend looking for a "shelter" program, or a "teen mothers" program in your area. They should be able to help you in any way you need. If you're comfortable with this, leave your city/state here, on this topic - I'm "subscribed" to this topic and will post whatever info I find here as well. If all else fails, you ould e-mail my user_ID (Dedicated_Dad) at yahoo dot com. I'm not some sicko, I'm the Father of 2 teen daughters and would want someone to help them... Still -- be safe, even with me. Don't tell ANYONE on the internet any more than you must -- I don't want to know anything except the city and state you live in so I can find and send you back the names and phone numbers of agencies who might be able to help. I can't speak to how good they are or anything - just that they're in the business of helping girls like you. You should do your own checking into their history and reputation! ALWAYS BE SAFE!!!! I'm praying for you... ( Full Answer )

Does a child have to visit a parent if their is proof of verbal physical and emotion abuse and documentation that abuse has been going on if they are not 16 years old in the state of Georgia?
I would say no. If this is divorce case and the father has court rights you should get a lawyer. I myself would not make my child visit his father if I knew there was abuse going on, no way.
CPS (child protective services) or go to the kids teacher, counselor ect. they will know what to do its also part of their job although many people dont know that
If you have a verbally abusive step-father how do you get him taken out of the household and not the children?
Call the police station and speak to an officer about it. If the step-father is threatening the children he can be removed and not the children.
Talk to someone, get your feelings out. Things feel so much better when you tell someone, hopefully someone you trust.

The parent or parents are to blame for letting one of their own children verbally and emotionally abuse them. Often the parent has spoiled the child allowing them to take control instead of the parent taking control. A 23 year old is no longer a minor and the parent can call the police to have the 2…3 year old removed from the residence and if need be a 'Cease and Desist Order' drawn up in hopes it will keep the son or daughter away from the parent. If this is done, but the son or daughter continue to telephone or contact the parent in any way with threats of violence then the parent can again report their child to the police and in many cases the son or daughter will go to court and possibly jailed. In such cases the parent has to be strong to stand on their own two feet knowing what they are doing is better for their son or daughter in the long run and with luck the son and daughter will learn the hard way that there are laws to protect the innocent; even their parent. If you decide to kick your son or daughter out of the resident you live in and you are female then have a male relative or a good male friend stay with you for a few days to be sure you have no repercussions from your child.

Is there anything you can do legally if the father of your child is emotionally abusive to your child?
Not only CAN you do something, you are REQUIRED to do something. By doing nothing, you are "allowing" your child to be abused. The fastest thing you can do is to go to the court house in your county and file a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER on behalf of your child. It provides for immediate protection…, pending a hearing. At the hearing, tell the court your concerns. If they believe your child is in danger, they will order an Order of Protection that usually lasts for a year. They might also arrange for supervised visitation between your child and the father. You should also contact an attorney. Laws vary by state. A lawyer in your state will be able to tell you what your options are. You SHOULD be able to consult with a lawyer for free. S/he won't work for your for free, but s/he will listen to you for free and give you an idea of what your choices are. Then, if you need to hire an attorney, there are free legal services available in every state if you cannot afford to hire a lawyer. ( Full Answer )
