Our expert says:
Call POWA or any similar local group that provides advice and help for abused women. Have your injuries photographed and recorded. It is very clear from your story that this man WILL NOT change, however often he apologises and makes promises. To a dedicated abuser, promises and apologies are merely tactics to keep you under his control, as much as controlling finances and transport and isolating you from others. But discuss this with POWA so as to carefully plan a SAFE exit for you and the children, and plans for making a new life without an abuser
