I escaped a physically, mentally, emotionally & sexually abusive marriage and am now ready for divorce. I am no longer in the abusive relationship, i escaped 2 years ago and have been afraid to file for divorce for many reasons; fear of retribution. I have been in therapy since i left the relationship and have now regained alot of my former self back.
My concerns as a previously battered woman, would be anonymity (regarding ex husband) and affordablility. I am currently unemployed, and unable to hold full time work do to PTSD and Gastrointestinal issues from the abuse and am unable to acquire legal help on my own.
Are there program for Free/Income Qualified - Domestic Violence Divorce assistance/representation? Or perhaps a specific person you may know of?
Thank you in advance.
