My husband & I are legally separating because of our younger daughter abusing me physically. I cannot handle her, as I get bruised up worse trying to. I also cannot deal with the abuse, which has thankfully decreased some with her going to school & daycare, but her punches are more powerful. Her punishment is time-out or loss of activities. He gets our 2 kids, ages 8 & 9, & the house. He filed for the legal separation, not me. All I really know is that I have to get a job & move out, & we have to go to court. I really need some words of wisdom here. Our church won't help me. I'm not looking for sympathy. I just need to know what to expect at court & before going to court.
