I was married to a controlling, abusive, verbal abusive, mental abusive, emotional abusive, physical abusive man for almost 12 years. I still have severe depression and anxiety from it. I stayed up days and nights getting all my information together and in order. My lawyer would not use any of my abuse in my divorce. He told me that I would have to go into the courtroom in a wheelchair for the Judge to even consider my abuse. I just can not believe that could be true. I have been divorced for almost 7 years. Is there anything that can be done now? I do not think he even went through any of my boxes of information.
