What can I do to protect my kids and myself against an abusive husband?

The team from The Family Matters Show answer this question from the community:

“My husband and I are separated for over a year. Through our marriage, I suffered domestic violence. I finally got up the courage to leave him, but because we have two kids together we need to keep communicating constantly. This makes me uncomfortable as he is verbally abusive and threatens me all the time.

We now battling over custody of our children in federal court but I don’t want him to keep abusing me this way and turning my daughter against me. What can I do to protect my kids and myself? Will I have to live like this for the rest of my life?”

The Family Matters Show is LIVE on Facebook on the first Tuesday of every month from noon.
