Recognising and acknowledging that you, and your children, are a victim of Domestic Abuse (DA), also referred to as Domestic Violence, can take time. Your expectation are so undermined by DA that whole new idea of ‘normal’ develops.  But once you separate, patterns of behaviour that were suffered and tolerated before, are seen in a different light.  Coming out of a relationship where there was DA will impact on the process of separation.
