UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello. My name isXXXXX partner is abusing me mentally and physically. We live in a share house with 4 other people. We have 2 years old daughter. He ignores her and me, but if he doesn't like something, he abuses me. Mostly mentally, but sometimes he beats me. I'm afraid of calling police, because he is the only working person in our family and I've heard that law will be on his side. I want to move out but he will call police then and say I kidnapped our daughter. We're polish family. He doesn't want to agree to claim for any documents for my daughter (she was born in england). Is there any hope for me to keep my child? I'm hard of hearing so it's difficult for me to learn language (I'm using google translate now) and find a job. I've read many articles in newspapers about kids taken away from both polish parents in UK. They've never seen their kids again. I will not make mentally when loose my daughter.
