What fresh hell is this?

This happened to me. It took me 5 years to win full custody of my child over my abuser. I fought and fought for my DS and I'd never have given up. But I had legal aid in those days.
Now what happens to women and children?
I can't believe what I'm reading, in God's name how can being a victim of domestic violence "complicate" things.

Shehasadiamondinthesky I’m so sorry that happened to you and your DS and so glad to hear you prevailed in the end.
It’s shocking, though not surprising to read. I am constantly amazed that the courts think fathers with violent criminal records should be considered suitable parents for contact in the face of mothers asking for there to be none.

Something very similar to this happened to my friend a few years ago when her ds was a newborn. She did get him eventually back but she has serious ptsd because of it which she is too terrified to seek help for unless it's later used as a reason to remove her children again. It's absolutely atrocious.
