Hidden Hurt Domestic Abuse Information

Other forms of financial abuse

by Emma
(Anon, anon, anon)

Other forms of financial abuse that I encountered included:

- denial of access funds,

- having to ask for funds and explain the reason the funds were needed,

- and all assets were in his name only. The house, the cars, the bank accounts.....all his.

He even tried to gain control over my income without allowing me access to his. If I hadn't had my own income, I wouldn't have had a way out.

I would not recommend informing your abusive partner how much money you have in the bank. Keep all banking online, no financial information mailed to the house. They will either find a reason for you to spend that money, especially on them, or refuse to provide you with financial support.

Threatening to leave and informing him that you have the financial means to do so will not change the abusive behaviour. That might actually escalate things.
