I went through a divorce in 1993 after 10 years of abuse, beatings,a lot of physical and emotional damage. In court the judge put a restraining order against him, and he was ordered to keep up all payments until we went to court. He let the house be foreclosed on, burned all my cloths and family pictures and sold all the furniture. I left the state until time for court as I feared for my life. I came back into town, he knew I was there and started calling and threatening me. My daughter and I were at a shopping center, he suddenly appeared and attacked me. Knocking out 5 of my teeth, hitting me in the face over and over until I blacked out. My daughter was able to get me in the car and to the police station. There I was snickered at, nobody would go and arrest him, it was a joke to them. Next morning I called the DA, they said to come down and file a report which I did. We got a court date, he was given a $200.00 fine and released. I felt like a whipped dog with no rights. I want to know if after all this time, is there any way to sue him for either assault and battery, contempt of a court order, anything. I have dental problems caused by his attack that I can't afford. I think he should be liable for all my medical bills even now as I have had to let it go . I had to leave the state, my family, due to fear.As for the divorce, the judge said I should be content that I can go to sleep at night and not worry about him coming in and beating me. I lost my house, my furniture, clothes, personal items that cannot be replaced. Is there no justice in Texas for a woman under these circumstances?
