I have a relatively new friend (our daughters just started playing
with each other in Kindergarden this year) who just called to tell meshe spent the day yesterday in court. Her husband dragged her out of
the house by her neck and was attacking her. Fortunately the kids
were sleeping. The neighbors called the cops. She did manage to get ayear long restraining order against him. But now this mom of 4 (kids
are 5, 4, 2.5 and 1.5) must live on her own. The court could only
prove that the husband makes $500 per week-he works for his uncle andmakes at least double that but under the table-so she will only get
$350 per week to support 5 people! Has anyone else run into this. I
think (but haven’t said anything to her yet) that she should tell himthat he needs to cough up more money or she will call the IRS. Or
will this land her into trouble too as she is still married to the
jerk? We live in the NorthEast and I’m sure the rent at her place iseasily $1500 per month. She doesn’t have a degree so she would never
make enough money per hour as she would have 3 kids in daycare! I
want to help, but don’t know what to do. Any suggestions are helpful.I know abuse happens, I’ve just never known anyone it has happened
