Single Mother of One Who Is Suffering From Domestic Abuse Needs Help Researching What Aid Is Available?

Question by : Single mother of one who is suffering from domestic abuse needs help researching what aid is available?
Hi, I live in the Kansas City area and am currently in a abusive relationship with the father of my 10 month old child. I am completely dependent on him financially. I have been applying to jobs, and haven’t been able to land one. My plan is as soon as the lease is up (next month) I will go to a shelter since I have been unable to find work. I was thinking of going to Nursing School. I have been researching what type of resources are available for somebody in my situation. I haven’t been able to find a lot.

Also, I have been trying to find out what type of legal aid might be available since there will likely be a custody battle. We are not married. He has a good job, and recently has come into a large sum of money. I have no money, he spent my savings. Also, he is a drug addict (cocaine/marijuana/alcohol), but doesn’t have a police record. I do not have any documentation of the abuse. I’m very scared that I will loose my daughter. I have a history of depression, he says if I leave him that he will use that against me in court. He says that I’m the only woman he has ever hit, and that it will never hold up in court, because he will have his ex-girlfriends testify that he was never been violent with them.

If I could get him drug tested, I think he would just clean up for the test. You can have cocaine out of your system fast, and marijuana in a few weeks. If he know that we are going to court, I know that he will just stop using drugs until after the hearing.

Any advice is welcome, thank you so much.

    Excellent? research. It is no longer questionable that mind control doctors were imported into the U.S. The Rutherford Institute (think tank, research center) recently published the results of redacted but released U.S. government documents.
