BLAC, you have taken some very strong first steps -
1. You stopped keeping this a secret and told someone. That shows real courage.
2. You began legal steps. You have to do this to document what has been happening.
3. You realize that this is hard to deal with and came here. Don't keep how you are feeling a secret. If your family asks you how you are feeling, tell them the truth. No one goes through this alone and it sounds like they will stand by you.
In addition to what you are doing, see if there are any services for battered women in your area. They will have advocates to help you through the legal system and resources that may be able to help you along the way.
Keep in touch
