My partner's ex has done nothing but fight, argue, accuse, threaten and verbally bash everyone in his life. She uses her daughter against him and doesn't allow him any time to see his child. She has applied for sole parental custody of children and he can't afford to fight it through the family court. What should he do about letting her get her way and when his daughter is old enough, show her how hard he fought to the point of breaking financially and emotionally? He has another daughter he has to support and can't afford to fight her anymore. She still stalks his everyday life to use against him but has told family court a bunch of lies including physical/sexual abuse. Will the family court automatically rule in her favour and give everything she has asked for under family law? He has applied for legal aid and lawyers but hasn't been approved in time and hasn't got the money to get a lawyer.
