My partner's detail:
-36 years old
-legally married to another woman
-has 2 children from the first family
-28 years old
-have a 4 yr. old son
For verbal abuse, we often have fights when I go out with friends. He would shout "malandi ka"; "pokpok ka"; "butas ka na"; "kabit ka lang" to his heart's content even if our neighbors can hear. He is a very scandalous person. When I try to ignore him, that's when the physical abuse starts.
For physical abuse, when he can't get the things the way he wanted by shouting, pleading or begging.. he would do something to aggravate the situation. For example, trying to damage my cellphone so he can get my attention. I had experienced being punched on the face, punched on the stomach, as well as being strangled resulting to serious neck pain after. My mother, brother and sister have been witnesses to these regular commotions. Although they can't help but only see the bruises and swollen parts of the aftermath.
I wanted to get away but I have no information on how to do it legally. I just want to be safe and have the custody for my son. Please help.
