My husband is an addict becoming abusive and I have been trying to get him to move out for a year.

For a week before he left and took his two teenage sons with him, he threatened to have me put in prison by Child Protective Services and the sheriff for child abuse. and make sure I couldn't show my face in town if I made him leave. Now he and his sons are lying and have a CPS investigation going on me and it's almost cost me my job, not to mention my community security. Isn't there a law in Texas against threatening someone or doing something like that? I started voice recording him before he moved out and I just found them this morning. But his sons are putting on a big show and backing him up.

Are we hearing the whole truth. most teen boys will try to protect their mom not side with an abusive addicted father who is beating her. You have many options and several places to go. Best move on and leave the teen boys with him.

Seems like you need to just get away from this mess right now. Go to a women's shelter and seek help don't kick him out because if he is abusive he will hurt you. He is defiantly threating you and if you don't report him being abusive and he hurts those kids you will get charged as well. So I would leave and never go back and I would call the mental health police on him when he does what ever he is addicted too. I take it he doesn't pay the bills either? The hospital will help him stop his addiction and will take away his kids and put them in a safer environment. So you need to leave in a protected environment.

I think you need a lawyer. Bring the tapes. Do you have any evidence he is an addict?

I would go to the police or a women's shelter. If for some reason that is not an option, then I would go to a local church. Sometimes Pastors and or Priests can help people find a safe place to go.

Get yourself a lawyer, and file for divorce .. separate yourself from this man .. if he won't leave then YOU leave. Just about every community has resources/shelters for abused women .. not to mention the police if you are physically assaulted.

You are not the only women who has experienced a bad break up with someone who fights 'dirty' .. his means of lashing out to hurt you involves discredit and intimidation. I don't know WHY he's doing it .. and it really doesn't matter. You need to get away from him, and start proceedings to expose him for what he is, and release yourself from his 'grip' ... physically and emotionally.
