My friend is suffering from domestic abuse.She does not have parental responsibility for their daughter as she was born and registered Aug 2003. He is threatening to take her away from her and has made her lie on a voice recording bug about various things she has done. She was separate from him although they still live together they live in separate rooms and she fell in love with someone else. He planted a bug on her and recorded it to discover said affair but the emotional abuse and some physical abuse (one of which I witnessed) happened before that. Now he has isolated her from me and all her friends and changed the phone numbers. We know she could throw him out as we believe (since they are living in her fathers house) that he owns said house and he definitely wants him out. How can we help her. She is afraid to lose her daughter and I believe that is why she has not thrown him out. Can you help us to help her.
No they are not married. Parental responsibility is a legal term isn't it ?! It is the term detailing all rights of bringing up a child. What I meant was though is that HE does not have parental responsibility - small typo there.The child has learning difficulties and would not understand if asked who she wished to live with - she would not appreciate the enormity but the place she now lives is the only home she has ever known.
