I have been emotionally abused by my passive aggressive husband for 3 years. He is extremely cruel. He has been passive aggressive (silent treatment, withholding love, dismissive, etc.) and has also been verbally abusive (name calling, bullying, telling me how I should kill myself). He is in the law enforcement field and carries a gun. I am very fearful of him, but do not want him to lose his job. I have finally built my self-worth enough to divorce him, but I am concerned about our 1 year old son. I know my husband will try to get as much custody as possible in an effort to hurt me, but he makes little effort to see his son right now. I am the primary care taker and have given up my career so my husband could pursue his. I am concerned about the influence my husband will have on our son.I do not want my son to grow up to be a bully and treat others this way. I have a document anxiety disorder that I have developed in response to the emotional and verbal abuse. I want my son to have contact with his father, but I do not believe joint custody is in my son's best interest due to his father being an abuser who only uses his son as a pawn against me. My son and I have been living away from the family home for a little over a week due to the emotional abuse. I have contacted a lawyer, but am interested in getting some opinions about how best to use the emotional abuse in our divorce case and how the courts view it.
