My ex has recently started a new relationship and over the weekend it came to my attention from his ex of 6 years that he is a bit of a wanker. Abusive, a drunk and very controlling. He gave this lass a fractured cheekbone amongst other not very nice things. I have tried to talk to my ex about this as we have a 4 year old son who I am now clearly worried about. She has refused to believe any of it and has said he has given up the drink and that is ex is just a woman scorned blah blah blah. Unfortunately this ex never went to the police as she was terrified of him so as far as I believe he doesn’t have a domestic violence charge. Where do I stand legally with this as I have told her that Ill die before my little boy is allowed anywhere near him. I currently have him 2 nights a week, on a Tuesday after school and then one over the weekend. I know that there are 2 sides to every story but by all accounts the stories she told me where hard to hear and I am sick with worry. I know there is a thing called Clare’s law that I could contact the police about but I’m not sure how useful that will be if he doesn’t have an actual conviction of knocking anyone about. The lass has also given me a name and number of somebody to call at social services so I think I will call them at lunch. Any help or advice would be great!!
