How long does it take for someone to claim abuse after a break-up?Submitted by imaSmom on Thu, 04/20/2017 - 2:39pm
Must be the year of the epic break-ups on my end. My BIL first whose issue turned out pretty well considering what he was up against. Almost 50/50 and fair support order but he definitely dealt with the "he emotionally abused me by being condescending, I didn't like his tone etc".
And now another friend is going through a break-up. I went to HS with both of them. She managed to get a restraining order against him--frustrated my friend took to FB to vent his situation. Apparently he is not allowed anywhere near her and that means he can't see his kids because she is claiming no one is available drop off or pick up the kids besides her.
It just seems like for some the deck is very stacked against them. Of course I don't know for sure if either of them actually abused their spouses but the convenience with which you can make these allegations and with little to no proof and you can STILL have a impact on that persons life because now they have a record.
For the people that actually are abusive relationships I swear they don't get the help they need until it's too late.
