Julie is a mother of two sons whose life seemed perfect.Behind those beautiful closed doors in Bedford, New York, her husband routinely abused her physically, verbally, psychologically and eventually- emotionally through systematic alienation of her children. She had nowhere to turn for help. All people could see was an enviable lifestyle with a husband who was successful and bought her beautiful "things." Then came the divorce. This husband proceeded to cut Julie off financially, spending his considerable wealth on frivolous legal tactics. Without money, she could not fight back. Julie lost custody of her children, had nowhere to go, no job and therefore no income. Her divorce was denied;he did not want it. Julie won her divorce on appeal-for cruel and inhuman treatment. The pain of losing her children would never go away. Her husband keeps her in court. He said he would kill her with "motion practice" if she tried to collect the financial judgement of divorce -saying she would never see a dime-nor see her children again. This should not have happened. But people are rarely aware of the tactics used by husbands such as Julie's. My name is Julie. And this is my story.
