I have been in this relationship for five years. It started with removing me from friends and family. We relocated to Texas from Louisiana in 2013. When I worked, I would cover most of the bills. I became pregnant and I became vocal about it then the abuse started. My family don't want to get involve. My friends has tried and been remove from me. Family say work it out because my mom was an abuse victim. He then start using my credit to purchase things. He would not pay the debt off and now my credit is completely ruin. After the second child, he stopped me from working because he refuse to pay for childcare. He done gotten us evicted because he would not pay the bills. Now possibly facing another one. I need help and scare to call the police because I have nothing because of him controlling everything. I tried to reach out for support through churches, groups, organizations and was abused for it. What can I do?
This is far more appropriate in Domestic Violence. I am moving it there so you can get more answers.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Those seeking such a relationship are directed to the contact form on my website.
If there is physical abuse you can apply for a Family Violence Protective Order through the District Attorney's Office in the county where you live. This question is marked "Houston" so I'm assuming that is Harris County.
For child custody issues, you might try Lone Star Legal Aid or Houston Volunteer Lawyers.
This is not legal advice. Avvo Q&A does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
I'm sorry but you have not stated facts that give rise to any legal claims other than possibly child support. The Texas Attorney General handles that.
You might have a claim for ID Theft but not if you consented in any way to the debt or benefitted from it. Actual ID theft might get you out of the debt but I doubt you can collect money from him.
If there was physical abuse, there are many resources, just google help for spouse abuse. There might also be local free counseling available to help you become more independent.
