I suspect your case maybe over now? First....you do NOT need bruises for abuse. The Police were very wrong and I would have made a visit to the Superintendant at the Police station. You do not have a " tough case" for abuse. The Police should have arrested him & he would remain in jail for 3 days ( I do not know what State you are in). There are few individuals who " play the abuse card" that is not only wrong it is malicious. Men can also be abused. You can file a PDL, but I suspect your case has now been resolved. You are entitled to respect and to be treated civilly. Never allow anyone to physically, verbally, emotionally or financially abuse you ( financial hostage). I hope your life has improved and you are creating a happy life you could not have with your spouse. Take care.
