my boyfriend had been physically abusing me for a while. But we made up every time n he promised not to do it again. I always used to take pictures of all the bruises n scars I got. He got a hold of my computer and he deleted them all. I really love him we have been together for 3 yrs. But I've had enough :'( Yesterday night he slapped me after a really small argument. I tried to make a video n he took my phone. Then I told him I'm calling the police n he said ''go ahead u'll get in trouble too'' so I acted like I was gonna get help over the internet so I turned my laptops webcam on. I tried to get my phone from him n he slapped me twice again n I got it on video. We are both international students. I really don't want this to affect me but I really need help. I'm ready to hire a lawyer!I have the video of him hitting me he figured out I was recording and he tried to delete me but I took it out of the recycling bin. Please advise me on what I should do. He will never stop hitting me I really need him to learn a lesson. i NEVER purposefully hit him back. I did try to defend myself which may have caused hit scars from my nails.
