Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I appreciate that this is difficult for you.
Can you tell me who is, in general, the main carer for your child?
Do you live in a house that you both own, or are you renting?
Would you have a safe place to go to if you were to leave the family home?
OK, do you have anywhere to go if you were to move out?
The other option to consider is applying for a non-molestation and occupation order - preventing him from contact and excluding him from the home (regardless of who owns it, the outcome is based on need).
This is only a short term measure though, as orders are made for up to 6 months.
Either way, if you are the main carer for your child then it is likely that you would continue to be for the time being and if you were to move out he would have to apply to court for contact if you were not in agreement.
Can I clarify anything in particular for you?
To be honest him telling you this is further evidence of the abusive behaviour you are suffering.
It's cruel to suggest that you be separated from your baby.
I would suggest that you speak to women's aid about options for you to find a safe place as a victim of domestic abuse:
I hope this helps?
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating (at the top right of your screen), I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
