Is there a way to cut the cord between a father and daughter? Or any other way to keep him out of her life?
Long story short, I was in a very abusive relationship. The physical abuse didn't begin until after my daughter was born, but it was horrible and I suffered. My daughter and I were held against my will for years. I couldn't go to the police because of his family ties... even now, there isn't much I can do. Now, due to the laws, even though he tried to kidnap and take my daughter out of the country, he has unsupervised visitation. I have a new lawyer, a very expensive one but even he isn't very optimistic in my case. I'm at my wits end. My daughter is nearly 9, she hates him and is upset every time she has to go with him. He insults her, calls her ugly, and ignores her.
I don't want to cause him physical pain. Though he deserves a slow and agonizing death, and I secretly hope that it happens soon, I don't want to be the cause of it. What I want more than anything is for him to just disappear from our lives. Nothing more. Any ideas?
