My parents have recently divorced and my father is intolerable yet I have to see him because of the agreements in the custody of children arrangement. They haven't actually settled and finalised the divorce yet though (I don't know if this makes a difference or not) but they have definitely agreed on this custody arrangement. Under the arrangement I am to spend every second week with my father. I absolutely despise him. He emotionally blackmails me, makes me feel worthless and it puts me in emotional pain having to stay there. Is there any avenue I/ my mother can go down so that I don't have to see him? He says if I don't see him then he won't settle and my mum won't get anything out of the divorce property settlement. I feel bad because I don't want to jeopardize financial stability for my mother, step dad, and brother. But at the same time I definitely do not want to have to stay with him. Any help or advice would be really appreciated. Thank you.
