My name is Aubrie Heldmann. I'm a mother to 3 beautiful children ages 12, 10 and 2 years old. I am divorcing a man who was highly abusive mentally, emotionally and verbally throughout our relationship. My children and I all suffered his abuse. He is highly manipulative in his abuse.


I am his third wife. He has 3 children from his second marriage. Those children are 15, 13 and 12. His second wife and children have suffered this same abuse and manipulation for years as well as still are.

 

As of right now there are no laws in place that will allow protections for our children with visitation because abuse is not provable without bruises, cuts or other physical injuries.


What I am getting at is that all the types of abuse are preached about everywhere and talked about on how to recognize signs and how to heal from them and seek counseling and whatnot. However, there is NOTHING in place to protect our children from further abuse because it is not physical. I'm proposing there should be a law in place that recognizes the unseen abuse as abuse by law and with enough victims as witness to this abuse by one person... would allow certain protections, such as supervised visitation, to be able to placed in effect to protect ours and other children in the future from further abuse of all cases of any type of abuse.
