Emotional Abuse

Serving Franklin County, Delaware County and Areas Throughout Central Ohio

Many people are involved in abusive relationships. Emotional abuse is often a primary characteristic of such relationships. Frequently, women are the victims of emotional abuse. When a woman is abused in a marriage, her confidence and sense of self-worth can be significantly diminished.

If you have an abusive spouse, there are legal measures you can take to protect your rights. Common examples of abuse include:

  • Husbands who control the finances, including situations in which a wife receives an allowance or is kept in the dark about the family’s finances.
  • Husbands who constantly keep track of their wives’ comings and goings in a controlling and manipulative manner.
  • Husbands who tell their spouses that they will never find anyone else who will love them, making wives feel that they have no choice but to remain in an abusive marriage.

In certain cases, wives are abusive to their husbands. They may use the children as weapons against a husband by telling him that he will never see the children again if he files for divorce, or engage in other abusive behavior.
