how to prove verbal abuse?

I have a court date in march 09 for evidentary trial. I have a lawyer but need advice. I have 3 police incident reports made last year. I called the police because my ex kept yelling, cursing me and took my money so I wouldn't leave so I called the police each time. And last year I had an restraining order against him. Each and everytime he used his peace officers badge to say he knows the law and said I'm crazy or mentally ill. Yes I have ptsd but I received that from after discharged from the marines. My ex husband uses that as a punching line all the time. I'm afraid he'll use that in the court again. We both have lawyers but I'm asking for your opinions on what you think and is this sufficent enough to prove verbal abuse. Btw I attend all my va appts and take meds. Thanks

Get a very small voice recording device, hide in the most likely place that he'll be yelling at you next, and get him on tape. The more threatening and agitated he is, the better for proving the verbal abuse and threats of bodily harm. I don't know what the court needs in order to prove abuse, but this will at least give them a better idea of what you are dealing with. If he's on the police force, can't you go to his Commanding Officer with this? If he's abusing his badge, that's something his higher ups should know about. Best of luck and a *big hug*

do you have any family or friends that are willing to testify as witnesses to his verbal tirades? they would have to provide an affidavit taken by your attorney and may have to appear in court as a witness. it's probably not wise to try to tape him alone now as why put yourself in a dangerous situation, he's not worth it... as long as your safe and am able to stay away from him you should concentrate on yourself.

If you feel he abuses you, then why do you keep going back to him, or taking him back? This sounds like an absolute waste of time and money. Unless you can produce other witnesses, it's a he said--she said situation.
