Asked in Domestic Violence for Texas

Q: I am 7 month pregnant and my husband hit me on my breast and tummy. What can he expect if i report him?

The reason was alcohol, he always spend money for it, even he know we should save every cent to move away from his parents house where we live 3 years , we got 2 kids already they are his from before. I save everywhere but he spend all the time, so its never ending story. I am from Europe living here and been married with him for 3 years, i couldn't pay out my lawyer to get papers all because he take all money. I am at home, going no where, have no communication to other people , no friends , no work, no phone etc. he is very jealous , possessive and controlling but yet he can do every time everything and i do not have no rights to say anything, to know anything , to do anything. Wonder if this true????

A: It would depend on the severity of any injuries that you sustained. You need to contact a domestic abuse shelter and move to it with your children. He will not change and eventually you aor your children will be killed.
