Atypical victim (professional, educated) of severe IPV w/PTSD (healing) who escaped abuser 2 yrs ago w/only baby in tow, only to lose full custody of child recently in divorce. I was forced to represent myself w/my disability (up against abuser's 50K attorney), unprotected by ADA law, as female circuit court judge (ignorant of IPV effects on victim that interfere with her representing herself) forced me pro se & lost child. Saved money up to hire lawyer, but no one would rep me, siting I was a liability for "having proceeded too far pro se." Divorce finalized 2 weeks after tragic erroneous change in custody. Status quo misrepresented as abuser hadn't visited son in 2 yrs. Worst fears realized as abuser terrorizes me by restricting all access to my sweet boy who is suffering. SOSAfter divorce, learned he was in a new relationship so child be exposed to domestic violence AGAIN as paramour-turned-lover moved in with him and is raising my child. Worse, abuser is unaccountable for his tendency to perpetrate family violence, putting any bystander (our child) at risk while doing so out of recklessness (this IS the reason I left him). At minimum, my life has been rendered worthless as I'm not even a mother anymore in the court's eyes (and I've only ever told the truth and tried to protect my son). My ex, my abuser, rubs it in every chance he gets- maternal interference was one of the many ways he psychologically terrorized at the end of the marriage. My child is directly in harm's way and I feel helpless to protect the little boy I so love. Moreover, I long to mother in peace and safety- something I have never known.
