A mother with sons ages 7 and 5 and a daughter age 3 tells of her shotgun divorce. She does not know the whereabouts of her husband because she has been forbidden contact for over a year.
AnnaBelle Tea I am new to this group I have been involved with fcas Niagara I am terrified, I lost my children once back in Jan and I got them back in March they want another 6 months involvement, my lawyer that I had says give them what they want it's easier that way, how this all came about was an Innocent of two summers ago my husband was going through some hard times, he never hit me or our children, however in Oct of that same year, I was upstairs getting my sons stuff together for school my sons where fighting when I came down my one was was in a chair I did not see anything it wasn't until we got to school when my son informed a teacher that daddy had hit him with a slipper, since then I haven't seen my husband for a year now I am not sure where he is right now as I am not to have contact with him, he is innocent however fcas thinks he is a monster and an abuser I was told after this innocent happened that if I didn't turn against my husband the worker would have taken the children away that day, I still have nightmares over it even tho my children are back I am still missing that special person in my life what can he do to clear his name, any help at all. I feel that I have betrayed my husband and my son feels guilty I keep telling him he has done nothing wrong, I am trying to stay strong but some days it's harder than others, my son sees a councilor at his school to help him cope as he has some incidents at school when he is home he is fine and happy. I am competently lost scared and confused my husband has court some time in Jan. I feel this is my fault some how I am seeing a councilor too to help me deal with all this. I am just not sure what I can do. The kids miss daddy dearly. When ever I tell people I always think that they must think I am crazy I just want this nightmare to end!
AnnaBelle Tea see the problem is I am not 100% sure if he did hit my son or if my son just said that I wasn't in the room at that time, no body is listening to me at the FCAS as they feel I was abused as well witch again is NOT true. Also there was NO warrant at the time he was arrested. Plus when the police came to the house there was NO warrant for when they did a so called such in finding a slipper. I am just lost I am NOT getting any where with FCAS do to the fact they feel I am minimizing everything! I am just so lost and confused and sadly I do not have anything to record with and also on another note the court wants my son to testify against his father, but I told them no that he has been through enough and he is just getting back to normal, but I do thank you Chris for taking the time to answer me, I just wish I knew where to go and who to go to to get my husband cleared.
