This is a very difficult situation. Any time there are verbal threats you must tread lightly. The last thing you want to do is put yourself or your child in a dangerous situation. In this situation, I would definitely seek out professional help - either a therapist of some sort (Interact in Raleigh may be helpful) or an attorney. Good luck.
You are here: / / I have a 4 year old son with my husband. I want to divorce because he is verbally abusive. He harrasses me at work by calling over and over; has me paged overhead if I don’t answer. I want to leave but he will not let me leave with the child. If I leave without the child will I risk losing custody of the child. He is a police officer so he verbally threatens and says he will get custody of child. My sanity is at risk and need to get out. What do I do?
