hi.

i have a 2 year old and 3 month old. my 2 year old has seen more violence and anger than any two year old should, i was assaulted multiple times whilst pregnant with baby. today my ex got charged with assault and threats to kill towards me

what do i do next to protect my children?

See a family solicitor. The charges mean you can get legal aid if you are financially eligible. Are there bail conditions to protect you?

there are bail conditions. annoyingky they said they would include our daughters nursery to protect her but they havent

You really do need to get to a solicitor. Have you tried to get to see one? When is he in court? They can change the bail conditions then.

13th february he is in court.

have seen a solicitor for an initial appointment, really should have taken someone with me because i didnt understand any of it. will qualify for legal aid now as it wasnt 100% when i went if he would be charged or not.

Where roughly are you? If you're in the south east I might be able to suggest a legal aid practitioner.

im south west.

this is all so over whelming. theres major safety concerns at the moment so this is playing on my mind a lot sad

You could try Pardoes, unless that's not West enough!
