      We define domestic abuse as an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour, including sexual violence, in the majority of cases by a partner or ex-partner, but also by a family member or carer. It is very common. In the vast majority of cases it is experienced by women and is perpetrated by men.

      Domestic abuse can include, but is not limited to, the following:

      Coercive control (a pattern of intimidation, degradation, isolation and control with the use or threat of physical or sexual violence)
      Psychological and/or emotional abuse
      Physical or sexual abuse.
      Financial or economic abuse.
      Harassment and stalking.
      Online or digital abuse.

      I’d advise you to co operate with the police and give them a full statement. If you can, start writing down all the abusive episodes you can remember.

      It doesn’t have to be physical for it to be abuse. The police will have you and your childrens best interests in mind and you need to show you’re protecting your children from exposure to an abuser. Please co operate with them. You can bet he’s blaming you for everything. If they feel you’re in danger they have a duty of care to you and your kids to protect you.
