    If you feel youre being physically abused notify the authorities immediately and press charges. Contact a localchapter of a womans help group that will help you get out of this relationship. You will probably have t file for a protective restraining order against him but you will get help. The authorities once called can give you someone to contact. This is the universal answer to abuse today. Good luck, but make the call and quit taking the abuse

    A lawyer would be able to tell you and ultimately, a lawyer should be your source of information. There may also be a branch of an 'Abused Women and Children' center somewhere near you. It may be miles away but get in touch with them right now. If you don't know where they are, contact a local church or social services agency to get the exact information. Call them, they will will help.
