How to Sue for Emotional Distress

To file a lawsuit, you generally need to show “damage” of some sort. First you prove that you were harmed by someone else, and that they should be held responsible. Then you attempt to set a monetary value on the harm you have sustained (compensatory damages), and in some cases, to show that the defendant should pay an additional amount as punishment (punitive damages).

As we all know, others can harm us both physically and emotionally; and sometimes, the latter can be worse than the former. So emotional distress, sometimes described as severe mental anguish, is indeed a form of “harm.”

Can you, therefore, sue for emotional distress? The answer is yes. However, such lawsuits can be tricky.

If you are suing only for emotional distress, you will probably have an uphill battle. First of all, recoverable damages in such cases are usually relatively low. Because bogus claims in this area are common–and difficult to prove–courts are generally suspicious of “stand alone” emotional distress claims. This doesn’t make them impossible–only difficult. You are going to have to prove that you were emotionally “injured” – much more than simply being upset with another person’s behavior.

The situation becomes easier when physical harm or illness has been caused. When a visible physical impairment can be shown to be the direct result of someone else’s action or product, it is much easier to then convince the court that emotional distress has been caused as an outgrowth. Also, you may be able to demonstrate, and collect damages for, loss of earnings or earnings capacity as well as for physical pain and suffering.

What’s the bottom line? It’s not easy to build a lawsuit on a purely subjective feeling of being upset; but especially in egregious cases, it can sometimes be done.

If you feel you have sustained a level of emotional distress to file suit, by all means consult an attorney. He or she will be able to advise you on whether or not your suit has a reasonable chance of success.

  1. I was a victim of domestic violence for 17 years from an abusive husband. He was both physically and emotionally violent. I have been divorced since september of 2005. However I am suffering brain, neck and back injuries that are worsening with age and mentally and emotionally I am not the same. The man is a repeated offender for over 20 years in and out of prison for various violent and federal crimes including a murder charge before i met him back in the seventies.

  2. I was raised in an abusive home. There was both alcohol abuse, and physical abuse. I moved out at 17 to escape the mess. Police were called many time, many by me. And i have long lasting memories and even dreams of staying up at night watching my drunk father sleep, to make sure he didnt throw up and choke to death on it. Not only was i hit many time, but i saw even more brutal vilonce against other people. Even watched the swat team take my father outta the house because he was threatening suicide if my mother left. Sense i have moved out i have been diagnosed with post tramatic stress disorder, and also been prescribed anti anxiety medication. I was on no medications before i left the home. I have reoccuring dreams of his drunken outbursts, and even dreams of his death due to alcohol. Its scary becaus ei want nothing to do with my dad due to the physical and mental abuse he put me through. But i cant get him outta my head. Im going to sue for emotional distress because of the medications i have been prescirbed i believe due to the past abuse. I constantly have anxious feeling. Especially when im doing things, that he wouldnt apporve of if i was still living at home. I walk around with the feeling that a paino is going to fall on my head. This man has done a number to the way i think. How i act, and how i respond to situations. Wish me luck everyone. I think sueing him, will be showing him that the actions he has done to me will not go unpunished…idk how to go about this and i cant afford a lawyer, but im gonna do it

    • I understand your feelings on this, I too was abused emotionally, mentally and physically. I of course cannot tell you what to do, however keep in mind on your endeavor to sue your father that this will most likely make him angry and you will again endure some sort emotional problem that will stem from this. Whether these problems will be him actually trying to get back at you for suing him or your anxiety and PTSD causing you more problems than usual, because of the worry. Just keep in mind that not only might you not win a lawsuit, but the long term effects of trying may not be worth the whole thing.

    • That’s the attitude I’m trying to maintain also. My older brother sexually molested me from the time i was six years old until i was roughly 10. I am now 20 and have since been to several therapists and met with several social workers to help me get over it. Of coarse trauma like this in a young persons life isn’t something that can be forgotten. Many details have been blacked out but there are some details that just don’t go away. It’s been 14 years since that ordeal and i feel now that he needs to know I will not be taken advantage of any longer.

  3. I was not paid money owed me because the employer said he did not like my behavior.

    What happen this employer owed me $400 and he only wrote a check for $200. When I confronted him and the others that was involved about it he refused to corrected it. He said I did not meet the requirements which I did. When I went to the bank to cash the check he had called and had a stop payment on the check. He said “I stopped payment because I did not like your behavior when I confronted the responsible party. He said I did it while a person was coming in to fill out an application and I cost them money.” How rediculous was that?

    This business is bogus, unfair, has a high turnover, conjouring, misleading, and liars.

    Do anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

    • Yuki, I hear you and feel you pain. I’m tired of having contractors not perform to spec and then not backing up their work. I spent two years building a high end deck (I have the skills, but not the time other than nights and weekends) our of cedar and teak with custom posts and metal railings. The railing is one thing I jobbed out to a welder and he then had it powder coated by another company. The railing started to rust and peel within a week. I called the welder and he told me to call the powder coater. I told him I hired him, paid him and I have no connection with the powder coater so, no, you take care of it. I was so emotionally distraught that I could not deal with the issue for a year. I don’t even want to use my deck. Last night, I finally got to where I could call the welder again and he refused to take care of it and just kept telling me that it is the powder coater that messed up not him and to call him. I am physically ill. I worked so hard to build a beautiful deck and now this jerk has ruined it for me. It was to be where I can come home after a long day at work, crack a beer and sit and relax. Now I cannot even look at it, much less sit on it. Even if it does get taken care of, the memory had ruined it for me.
      I want to sue him for ten million for emotional distress and teach him and every other contractor that it is more than just time and materials. When they do not deliver as promised and do not stand behind their work, they are messing with the dreams of homeowners and for that they should pay.

  6. I was recently on vacation in the us, in the state of Texas, when I finished my shopping and was ready to hit the road back to Mexico I stopped at the malls dumpster and threw a bag full of cardboard and bags from all m shopping, all of the sudden I had a mall cop hand cuffing me and hurting me in front of my 5 yr old 10 yr old and wife, I now know it’s illegal dumping, but I’m a tourist so I didn’t know that was illegal, when he found out I was a national he treated me very bad and hurt my hands and back, basically treated me like a felon, the. The actual cops showed up and gave me a ticket, I was very cooperative at all times and tried reazonig with the mall cop but not only he said it’d be awful consecuences for my record he also scared my family and yelled at them to stay awAy if they didn’t want to get involved as well, now I have to show up at the court of another country and a city that is 24 hrs away from home, I feel like he treated me poorly and with a lot of racism. Can I sue the mall or the mall cop about this situation?

  7. I was sexually molested for a year by my mothers boyfriend. When I came out and told he admitted to it and did go to jail. As he was there over the course of a year I was put into 4 suicide hospitals for attempts because of all the pain, harassment at school about it, and the compete discuses of myself. I have no trust for anyone in my life because of this man. Do I have a case that would be worth my trouble?

  8. I won a breach of contract judgement. Then the defendant refused to pay and filed bankruptcy. He was just discharged and it was questionable. He 3 wks later magically now has $300,000 in earned commissions, that will grow to $540,000 in 4years. This is as a result of the contract he was found to be In beach of before filing bankruptcy and is still in (new) breach of.

    This has devastated my family. How can he get off Scot free without paying what he owes. And how can he continue this breach by not paying me to this day.to the point of ruin and suicidal thoughts.

    I am beyond distraught. His breach and negligent behavior has affected me and my family financially and emotionally and my health.

    Can he be sued for the emotional damages his conduct has caused and continues to?

  9. In 2008 my father supposedly committed suicide by shooting himself. He was living with his wife’s brother (who is a billionaire) in the mountains of Virginia. My dad was helping this man, my step-moms brother (We’ll call him Steve) build a 4 million dollar home. My dad USED to be a depressed alcoholic because my mom had died from cancer in 1997, and he had definitely been through his share of bull crap… But, at this point in his life, he seemed to me (and I knew him better than anyone) to be the happiest he had been in years. He had a job doing what he loved, living in the mountains (he loved the outdoors), he had taken control of his drinking problem and finally found a good woman to love.
    …I spent many-a-weekend in the mountains with him and my step-moms family. Steve seemed to really like me and my dad. He would buy us whatever we needed and just simply took good care of us and seemed to appreciate my dads help with building his new home. Though, there was always something about Steve that did not sit right with me. He kind of had a sneaky, creepy side of him that I felt like I would never understand (could have been the fact that he’s a billionaire)…. but yet he was always nice to me.
    ….The weekend of Mothers Day in 2008, I spent with my dad because it’s never an easy weekend for us. We talked a lot & just sat around the house because it was raining. I loved my dad to death, but I never really showed it… That was the first day in 10 years I hugged him, told him I appreciated everything he had ever done for me and told him I loved him. We made plans for the next weekend and I went back to my house in Richmond.
    ….The next day (Monday) I got a very strange call from Steve. He said my dad was drinking again and I needed to come get him or he was going to fire him from the house job… he just kept going on and on talking bad about my dad. This was totally out of the blue, it almost sounded like he was drunk. I hung up the phone crying but went about my day. The NEXT day (Tuesday) I called my dad and asked if everything was okay… He seemed to be fine, did not sound like he had been drinking at all (Trust me, I could ALWAYS tell) and we discussed our plans for the coming weekend once again. ….A few hours later I was told by my brother that my dad had died. I immediately called my step-mom to find out what happened. She claims that she was on the porch while my dad was in bed. She heard a gunshot and went in the room to find he had shot himself. That’s the only story I have ever heard and it really doesn’t make sense to me being that I had JUST talked to my dad a few hours before this and he was fine.
    …Since that day Steve has NEVER spoken to me. He didn’t go to the funeral… when I went to the house where my dad died to pick up some belongings Steve never spoke to me. I’ve e-mailed him and he doesn’t reply… it’s just weird to me. I called to get the autopsy report and they claimed that my dads “family” requested they didn’t investigate or test for drugs or anything. They automatically ruled it as a suicide and that was it. My family thinks I’m crazy and I don’t ever mention it anymore…. But I am losing my mind dwelling over this because I know I’m right. Steve has money and power over this small mountain town and I believe it was him that murdered my dad… he used my dads history of depression and alcohol as a cover-up. What do I do? I’m only 22 and don’t have enough money for a good lawyer or private investigator. Please help me find justice.

    • I don’t think you can sue for emotional distress but you can sue for defamation and probably other things…I know in porn everyone has to sign a consent form so if they posted something without your written consent you could probably get them for that, but I’m no legal expert. You could probably find out online.

  13. My parents divorced when I was about 2 years old, he remarried a short time later to the woman he was having an affair with. Ever since I can remember my stepmother was emotionally abusive towards my brothers and me. Off and on through my growing years he would be in and out of our lives. When he and his wife were around us there was always something done or said by her towards us that would cause emotional pain. When my father passed away she omitted our names from the obituary and made it know we were not welcome to go to the funeral. Even though I’m now 52 years of age I would like to know if it’s possible to sue her for emotional distress. She lives in the State of MA.

  15. I’m having issues with a company I ordered a product from a few weeks back. They messed up my order initially but gave me a coupon to make up for it. The coupon was more than the product so the product ended up not costing me anything. However I wanted it for a Halloween costume, and by that time it was a week away, so I paid extra for the fastest shipping they had, 3-5 (business) day delivery for $19.95, which would have gotten it to my house on Halloween day at the latest. After 9 business days, I still didn’t have it so I emailed to cancel the order, explaining the situation, including the initial mistake and coupon that came with it, but I didn’t receive a response. On the 11th business day after the order, my package arrived. I emailed again saying ignoring my email and sending my order a couple days later didn’t cut it, I didn’t want it anymore, I reiterated my first email, and said not only did I want my $19.95 back, but I wanted to return the item and be reimbursed for the cost of return. This time they responded saying I can return it but since I didn’t pay for the product itself, I couldn’t be refunded, and if I did return it I would have to pay for shipping and pay a 15% restocking fee. So I’ve been arguing with this person for 2 weeks, and I’ve caved a little, saying least I’ll take is the difference in what I paid for express shipping for regular shipping, which was $10. Now they are saying all they can do is give me that, minus the cost of the product since I didn’t pay for it, even though I’ve stated 4 separate times that it was free because of a mistake on their end. So I would only get $5 back. I’ve been super stressed out dealing with this because I don’t want the product but now I’m stuck with it either way, and I just want my money back. I feel for so little money I shouldn’t have to be getting this much trouble from them, but that I am entitled to a refund since they didn’t provide the service I paid for. I want to take it to small claims court for the amount charged, legal fees of going to court, and emotional distress. I know I can sue for the first two, but can I sue for emotional distress in this situation?

    • Deborah, The first and only thing that you should do is stop the payment through the charge or debit card company that you used to paid for it originally. They will get you back whatever you paid out because the company did not deliver as promised. Call them, and they can stop the payment to the company if it’s not too late.

  16. I am 17 years old. My parents got divorced when I was about 3, and I lived with my dad for six years.(Until age 9) Then was taken by CYFD and sent to live with my mom and her husband. Her husband is emotionally, and verbally abusive. He was always extremely controlling of me, of who I can talk to, hang out with, where I can go, what I can do, until now. Now I am old enough to know that what he is doing is abuse. I have a few specific incidents documented which can prove my emotional distress:
    1) When I was 14 (a freshman in high school) I threw a house party (with my mothers permission) and it got busted by cops, and she was blamed for buying the alcohol. Three days later, I was coming home from school and my flip flop broke, I continued to walk home on the burning asphalt. Once I got home I complained to my stepdad my feet hurt, he offered to give me a foot massage. I politely refused and jokingly said something about only asian ladies touching my feet. Next thing I knew he was laying in my bed(which he had never done before) and was massaging my feet, then my legs, then my thighs, then his fingers started sliding up my shorts. I took a (very shaky) picture of his fingers inches away from my shorts(they were short shorts) and ran away and called the police. CYFD investigated it and decided that since I had recently gotten in big trouble(the house party) I was just overexaggerating and trying to get out of it, regardless of the picture I took. Did he wait until after I got in a lot of trouble to do this because he knew no one would believe me? Was he smart enough to wait for that period of extreme vulnerability? I guess so, but now with everything else I can prove he’s done, and I finally have a few people on my side, I’m hoping this can be reinvestigated, or at least used against him as emotional distress when I sue.
    2) I have a picture from August 3, 2011 at about 8:30 pm of my bedroom completely trashed – I was at work from 5-8:30 that day, I had left my bedroom in its regular state of being messy (I’m a teenager. We have messy rooms) to come home and find everything thrown off my bookshelf, books and pictures ripped, all my posters on my walls, also ripped, and my extremely heavy TV(too heavy for me to pick up) thrown on the floor.
    3) Later that month, (August 2011), my stepdad kicked me out of the house for calling him a drunk bastard.(Did i forget to mention the drinking problem he has?) And when he did so, he screamed and cursed at me while I tried to pack my belongings as fast as possible. I had locked myself in my room while I tried to pack, and he banged and pounded on the door and screamed things like “You better hurry the fuck up!” (Not exactly a threat, but I still felt threatened). Although, I have no proof of this, my sister(age 9) and her friend(also 9) are witness’ to the abusive language he directed to me.
    4)My last arguments involves mostly things which happened in the past (about 2004-2009). I used to complain to my friends mothers, and my neighbors about how irrational his punishments were. ( For example, If I left my shoes in the living room, he would throw them outside and let the dogs destroy them. Intentional destruction of property of a 9 year old girl? Abusive.)
    -I was about 9 or 10 years old, my neighbor had a friend visiting from Carlsbad (she was also 9 or 10) and my mom said my neighbor, and her friend could spend the night at my house. My stepdad freaked out because we didn’t ask him and he screamed and cursed, and turned off all the electricity in the house. The visiting girl from Carlsbad witnessed it all, and we sent her home terrified. She never came back to visit my neighbor again. Although I would not use her as a witness, my neighbors mother seems like a fine and eligible witness.

    These are just a few examples of the type of abuse I’ve endured throughout my childhood, directly caused by this man.
    But looking at it in a legal battle, he can reply with all that I’ve done to wrong him, which include: forging checks(stealing money from him- happened over a year ago) and thats about it.
    He tries to say that I threatened to physically harm him (he has no proof), and that I’ve caused him emotional distress because I stole money, and “lied” about him running his fingers up my thighs and under my shorts.
    Please, let me know what you think. These are just a few examples of his abuse, but is it enough to sue?

  17. 20 years old and my parents divorced when I was 7. They were verbally and physically abusive to each other. I think that grew into my siblings and I, we repeated this behavior to each other A LOT. I was bullied in school while a different group outside of school would beat me up in my neighborhood. I told both my parents about the bullies but they both came to the conclusion that I was being over-dramatic and that I was actually being made fun of not beat up. When we moved my mom remarried to a guy from England when I was about 12 and he was cool at first but behind my moms back he was completely different. Always talking down to me and made me feel like shit constantly. He went through this phase this one month and decided to try hitting me think he gave up on that when he realized I wouldn’t change. I always told myself things could be way worse for me ex: I could be homeless, one of my parents could have died when when I was young, etc. and that usually got me through the day when I was young. When I became 15 saying those things just stopped working because I found out I had addictive behavior and was self destructive. When I turned 17 I started having irregular heartbeats but ignored them cause I was not sure what was happening by that. A few months before I turned 20 I had this severe chest pain (what I found out was a minor heart attack). I went to a medical cannabis doctor this year in CA to get a medical card. (I developed an addiction while in high-school and although I did not have friends I still managed to find a dealer because I was curious and I figured there was sure to be people who would want the money). He did my blood pressure and it was 140 over 90 three times in a row. He says it was stress although I didn’t tell him what could have been the cause of it when he asked. If I were to go to a psych ward or something I would feel like everyone in my life was right about me. If I continue to not seek help the consequences could be fatal. I would want enough money from my parents to afford psychological and physical help to get back on my feet and try to make something of myself (away from them). I am still living with them and currently they live in a million dollar house. They make me sick sometimes when I’m reminded about how “successful” they exactly are. It’s a horrible thing to say about them cause they raised me with the food, water, and shelter but they act like that’s enough when they say how ungrateful I am. I am surprised I haven’t done anything drastic with myself but I think it might be just a matter of time. I know it’s not normal for a regular person to be talking like so negative I am very aware of the condition I’m in and am not in denial about my state of mind any longer (thought because I was young that I was healthy). I want/need help but I’m not one to grab attention because I know to do so just means trouble. I don’t mean to sound so needy/whiney but I really need help. There are plenty of others with more severe problems but if there is anyway I could get away from the source of my problems so my health could just have a break I would want to know. If there is free hospital care that I could go to or some government money I could get I’d greatly appreciate any help if someone could help me through getting it. The last thing I would want to do is sue but I would do it if it came down to it. I have not gone to a hospital since that day with the cannabis doctor yet because I am actually fearful of my parents founding out about the cannabis. My hair has been starting to fall out more than it has been in the past and I have had 3 more heart attacks since the first one and they have been getting worse. I have been underweight all my life and currently weigh 100 lbs at age 20 and it is still dropping. Being a 5’9″ male with these conditions a kid could tell I wasn’t healthy.

    • Forgot to even ask if I would be able to sue AT ALL. I don’t know much about the law and it’s methods so if someone explain how suing for emotional distress works if I’d be able to sue and if not, tell me of another way I could possibly get help I’d really appreciate it.

  18. My employer is constantly yelling and screaming at every employee in his office. He is a doctor and he is emotionally abusing me and all of my co workers. One day I was frightened for my life. He was so angry I thought he was going to leave the office come back with a gun and kill all of us. He screams at the nurse too. Can I file a lawsuit for emotional distress? When I get home I sometimes puke from the stress he causes me.

  19. My husband and I were having marital issues and in June he informed me that he was moving out. We tried going to a couple of counseling sessions but after 2 of them he refused to go. I found out that starting in May he and a co worker started an emotional affair. On several occasions we argued about this girl and my husband promised to stop talking to her. He never did.
    My husband started his move the night before my 8 year old was admitted to the hospital for a staph infection. Once I learned my son was being admitted I had my father go in my house and change locks and such so he could not take furniture without my agreement. Well Saturday morning he broken into my house through a window and took almost every piece of furniture.
    Starting in June when I found out about this girl and the fact that he continued to have an emotional affair with her was absolutely heart breaking. I couldn’t handle the pain and my doctor put me on anti depressants and I missed a lot of work.
    Can I sue him or this girl for lost wages, medical appointments and counseling appointments that I endured over the last 6 months?

  20. I was recently married. I hired my caterer nearly 12 months prior to the wedding. I also gave her a deposit of $2800 in cash, and have the receipt. She gave me a menu to choose things from and we agreed on everything almost 8 months before the wedding. She told me the price pp would be 22.50, for 80 people. She also said staff would be an extra $750 and she said that was on the high side so there were no problems. She failed to inform me that I would be paying for other things like the appetizers, and coffee. She never mentioned that to me ever. All of our conversations were through email. We have no signed contract. She did not deliver what we agreed to. the food was not prepared on premise, and it wasn’t even close to the menu we picked. She brought baked ziti, and some other kind of pasta, and plain chicken patties and salad. Then she hands me a bill in the middle of my reception for another $1370! My MOH said just write her a check, don’t be upset you can handle her later. So I did. I was so upset! She tore down the reception beginning at 7pm all the seats and cloths were uncovered, and they sat in the back till 9pm. Two days after the wedding I wrote her an email and explained how I was upset and wanted to work something out. She said she was busy with other new brides, and deleted all my information, but she hoped I had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon, and that their would be no more emails, with a smiley face. I was infuriated, so I stopped payment on the check. She then wanted to talk with me, after she found that out almost a week later. Then we went back and forth about who did what, and didn’t do what. So, I told her to take me to court, but I would have to counter claim her because she ruined my wedding! She filed the papers, and then began to talk about me on her facebook page. “Oh this bridezilla is driving me to drink” “I am not violent, but this bridezilla from (the date of my wedding) makes me want to punch her in the nose” and many other things. I am not sure what I should do. I have the papers for the counter suit, but I don’t know what ordinances or statues she has violated. I feel ill every time I think about it. It makes me so sad that my wonderful day, has been compromised by this person. What should I do?

  22. I have a 6 month old son who was having health problems so we took him to the dr. there was one dr who everytime she talked to me she made me feel dumb. at one point she told me that i needed to stop bringing him into the hospital. so i requested a different dr. when i did this she called cps which resulted in my husband and i loosing my son for 2 months and nearly getting a divorce. cps dropped the case because i did what i had to do as a mother. is there anything i can do to make this dr learn from what she did. her anger with me cost me my lil boy for 2 months. I will never get that time back.

  23. My son was diagnosed with Irritable Bowl Disease several years ago, but recently has gone to see a specialist that confirmed the family physicians diagnosis. The major problem is my son is now 16 years old and has suffered since he was in probably third grade with this issue. However, after diagnosis we gave the school a slip to allow my son to use the restroom whenever he needed to go and yet during middle school and high school it has been a battle for each teacher to get that he needs to go. He continues to be embarrassed by the teachers when asked questions and told you are missing so much work you cannot continue being gone for so long. My son has had to rearrange his schedule and happens to have ceramics first period which is usually the worst time for his IBS. However, I have not been contacted by her about this issue; instead she discussed his restroom breaks with him and he is again upset and doesn’t know what to do. One trigger of IBS is being nervous or upset. I have sat down with the middle school in the past and have spoke in depth to the school nurses, guidance counselors and still they make him feel ashamed. What can be done if anything. I am calling the teacher in the morning because she is flunking him because he is gone so much in the restroom, but he spends his extra period in her class. This class is full participation and I understand this. My problem is I just do not think children are heard and teachers feel that they know best. My son has continued to feel bad about himself because of his IBS he does not need a teacher helping him out. Another problem was he missed school with this problem a lot in middle school and he had forgotten his book he thought in a class room and his teacher happened to be standing near us when I asked if he had seen my sons book and the teacher said “no, he would have to come to class to have lost his book in his room” to my sons face. My son was devastated. Please let me know if you think there is anyway we can pursue something so that the future of other children or teens with IBS do not have to suffer the same fate as my child. He hates school and wishes it was over and these are suppose to be the best years of his life. It is sad when it is not the kids that make your child not want to go to school but the faculty.

  24. My service provider issues me with a defective iphone. They need to send my unit to Apple and have it replaced it would take 30 days. They don’t offer sevice phones so for me to have service I need to have an extra phone, which I don’t. Can I ask them to temporarily suspend my sevice, to avoid charges, since I CAN’T use the services without the phone? And since I can potentially lose Clients/Business/Earnings within the 30 days of not having service, is that grounds for a lawsuit? thank you.

  25. hello

    I had relation with a girl for 6 months..and she was insisting of marrying her for first 4 months and even made me talked to her mom for marriage. She made me to decline good marriage proposals that time because of her emotional behaviour that time. she had been bugging me emotionally during that period as I was not interested much initially..because she had a relation with some guy in past, for two years and done things with him not allowed before marriage in our region.

    She harrased me mentally and emotionally throughout and even hurt herself by making cuts on her skin to emotionally hurt me so that I talk to her and marry her Later I also wanted to marry her. But some time before she told she don’t want to marry ,reason withheld by her.

    Kindly advise as case for causing me emotional stress over 6 months and wasting my time. I never met her but we talked on phone,texted and emailed. I also got fire from work due to Decreased work performance.

  28. My children’s father and I have shared parenting. In June 2011, he ordered the babysitter to not let me see the children and hid them in her basement. I was terrified, not knowing what was happening in the house and why my girls were being kept from me. An hour later a police officer showed up at my house and I found out the babysitter that I hired filed a trespassing report on me and I would be arrested if I set foot on the property. I was so upset I could barely breath. I couldn’t sleep or eat for days. I contacted the police and they said the couldnt do anything about custody. I hired an attorney and went to court to file for full custody. The babysitter never faced consequences. The damage of having my young girls hidden from me has been extremely emotionally tolling. The children’s father refuses to communicate on the issue and says he doesn’t need to telle why he ordered her to hide the children. I have been seeing two different councilors to help, along with meds to help me sleep. I keep having nightmares oft children being taken from me. What can I do? Please help.

  34. I was in a relationship with someone for a year. Found out I was being used for money the whole time, and being cheated on. I lost so much money during this relationship that I had to file bankruptcy and sell my house. The “person” I was seeing had a couple of friends attack me and take my cellphone. During the attack they said the person I was seeing never cared about me and, along with them, had laughed at text messages I had sent during the last year, including ones where I had talked about being sexually molested by my father. After this, I was not able to work for six weeks, attempted suicide twice, and was hospitalized at a suicide prevention center. I did manage to get my job back, but can seldom stay a full day. I don’t want to be around people anymore, can’t stay focused on anything, and can’t do much besides try to work and sleep the rest of the time. What can I do??

  37. I moved in with my boyfriend of 7 years almost two years ago. His place was somehat small and I have to sell everything I owned so that his place would not be crowded. Furniture, kitchen essentials, I mean everything, even some clothes.
    He started drinking heavily and is very controlling (I am not allowed to have certain foods in the refriegerator that he doesn’t like). He doesn’t let me pay for any bills or rent (he says if i pay then I will have more of a say on what I can and can’t go at HIS house). With the excess drinking and violent temper comes giving his number to other women and late night text messages. (not his fault, it is the alochol, whatever!)

    Point is, I have nothing save. No money because I have only been working part time at the Y as an after school counselor and I am a full time student. In the last week I have gone back to work full time, still no money saved.

    I want to move out! I don’t have any family to turn to and he has ruined all of my friendships. Can I sue him for moving expenses since he made me sell everything I had to move in with him? Or am I stuck there in an emotional hell until I save to move out? I am not making a lot of money and it could take 3 months to save.

    Is this out of the question? There has been physical abuse against me in the past where he was arrested and convicted.

  38. My husband packed up and left me and my son in October 2011. He has not looked back since. He blames it all on our 16 year old son’s actions towards him, but while my son was in rehab my sons ex girlfriend and my husband started something. After my son was gone a week or so later she came to me and asked if it would be ok to stay with us for a few weeks because she was having issues with her Dad, my husband had already told her yes, and I did not see anything wrong with it at the time because she became like family when she was going out with my son. As time went on I started noticing things. They would sit in the same room and text one another (my husband and this child) He would yell at me while I would be putting laundry away that was clean if it required i go back towards her bedroom and his office that were across the hall from each other. He was staying in his office all the time. He was mean to me all the time. I saw him talking to her and flinging his chair back to the desk and i confronted him and he said no he wasnt. Then towards the end before i called and told her Dad to come pick his daughter up I had suspicions there was something between her and my husband, they started leaving together and not allowing me to go with them. I was always told I was imagining things and that there was nothing going on. Until I knew in my gut that it was happening. The school even got the police involved but as of yet nothing has come of that. She is now pregnant and has been living in his apartment with him. I have proof of this and will be using it when I get ready to divorce him. He still claims he has nothing to do with her. They share a bank account, she has a cell phone on his bill, they call each other all the time and have for a while now i have the logs when i was on his cell bill i could get them and print them. He acts like he wants to work things out with me but doesnt know how to. They are not even getting in trouble as they should. i know her mother is still looking to prosecute him for any reason she can find. I have been left to deal with everything from the bills to the house that is now in foreclosure because on 300 a week i could not pay the mortgage to my son who has been absolutely out of control and I am also working a 40 hour a week job to support me and my son. I have truly been mentally traumatized by all this that has happened due to this girl and my husband who is 50 by the way. i am sure this has been both of them. She gets on twitter and teets about everything until recently she has slowed down. They watch movies together cause she will post and he will tell me what he watched. They bought new furniture together and he told me he got it and she posted about spending $$ on new furniture. he said it was on craigs list but i am thinkin they got it new. who knows though. reqaurdless that was half the income tax money that she sis not deserve. we have been married 31 years. And he did this? How do you not have emotional scars from it? I need to know if i can sue her for emotioanl and financial destress? She is now 17 and living with my husband and we are still married. What do I do to get some stability and peace of mind back? Thanks for any answers I can get! Peggy

  41. Hello,
    I recently was beaten up by my EX fiance, he broke my wrist, he also broke my other wrist last year, and broke my nose earlier this year. This last incident was te final straw.
    He uses racial slurs around me, knowing and had known BEFORE we started dating that I have a grown black daughter and 2 black grnadkids. He also had kicked me out of his vehicle in the middle of snow storms, and made me walk home 2 miles. I had to call a friend to pick me up and this made him madder at me.
    I know I have enough to sue him for physical abuse but also wanting to sue him for mental abuse.
    He has told people he never loved me, but used me as a babysitter for his sons who live with him, and he only proposed to me to “shut me up”
    I have a protective order against him, and he has been arrested for violating the order.
    ANY ADVICE???

  42. Hi My name is Tara just want to share my experience with everybody on how i got my love back. I was married for 5 years with 3 kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had misunderstanding it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce. I tried my best to make him change his mind and stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn’t want to loose him but everything just didn’t work out he moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce. I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr Check who eventually helped me out. I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice. He did a cast a love spell on him. Within 3 days he called me and was sorry for all what happened,he moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too. Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there will need his help You can email him: templeoflove1@gmail.com

  43. Okay back in 2010 my husband and I got a seapration and when I left to go up to my home state of West Virginia I went to a friends house and my mother was mad at me for not going to her house. Then after my husband found out where I went he went to my mother’s house and she took him in. After a month and I wouldnt talk to either one of them and served him with a restraing order, they went to our old home in Florida and proceeded to clear out our mutual belongings. I’m still not sure what was taken form me by them-then they came back to West Virginia and proceeded to harrass me with phone calls all hours of the day and night-mostly threatning me with miscellaneous consequences I would suffer if I did not do what they wanted me to do. Mean while I had my oldest son with me which by the way my husband left myself and he alone with no vehicle which is why I left to West Virginia in the first place.
    So I went on with the battle of filing divorce and reporting their phone calls and went to court and won with no problem. Then the Judge granted my husband visitation of our son every wednesday. When he came to get our son an affiliate of mine who hates my husband had someone throw rocks on the car while he was pulling in- I had nothing to do with it but my husband proceeded to take my child and disreguard the visitation times given by the Judge. Mean while he’s still living at my mother’s house. After that incident my mother proceeded to call me at all hours of the night and day to let me know I should not go near her home or my husband and myselves joint vehicle even thoguh it was registered to me because if I did my uncle had a gun and she was telling me for my own good…. long story short my husband and i could work things out but because of her actions my mother and I are estranged and I hate her for turning her back on me and taking my husbands side. My question is do you think I have an emotional distress case?

  44. I have been suffering from hypoglycemia for a long time now. When I had a gallbladder attacked back in 2011, I went to the doctor and was told that I needed my gallbladder removed. I was also told, “there is not magic pill for hypoglycemia”, and that there was nothing that they could do to help me. I was so afraid of the procedure that I never went through with it. It is now 2013, and my overall health has been so bad that I figured it would be best to have my gallbladder removed so I can feel well again. I asked for a copy of my medical records so I can share them with whatever doctor was going to treat me for my gallbladder. When I finally obtained a copy of my medical records I was shocked to learn that not only was my gallbladder playing a part in the deterioration of my health, but I also have a fatty liver and some other issues with one of my kidneys. I could not believe that my doctor had withheld important health information from me. After doing research I learned that my fatty liver might be playing a part in a lot of the symptoms I am having, hypoglycemia for instance. Why did my doctor withhold this from me? I have been suffering for 2 years with horrible symptoms, and never did anything about it because I thought my gallbladder was the issue making my life a living hell. I also learned that not treating a fatty liver could lead to life threatening illnesses. If my doctor would have notified me initially of my fatty liver I wouldn’t have drank alcohol on special occasions or I could have been working on my weight as well. If my doctor would have told me about my liver not functioning well 2 years ago I might have been well today. I recently started having difficulty urinating and I read that this could be due to my kidney… my health continues to deteriorate because my doctor never help me. My relationship has suffered along with my finances. I haven’t been able to work and I’m up to my neck in bills. I received my bachelors degree in business in 2012. I have not been able to began my career and my students loans will be due soon. If my health gets worse and I die my 2 baby girls will be left without a mother. Is this considered emotional distress? Can I sue my doctor? HELP ME PLEASE!!

  45. I lived with an emotionally abusive alcoholic. Not only were his words brutal to me but he was also bullying my teenage daughter. She became withdrawn and began cutting herself to where her arms are scarred. I have issues with depression, have not slept right, stress related illnesses, and so forth from this man. My son also has shown signs of emotional distress due to being in that environment. This man also owes me money from working on things for his business. Over 5k to be exact.

    We have since moved away from the situation but he continues with the emotional battering through emails. Can I get a lawsuit against this man for distress? I have saved every text, email, yahoo conversation and voicemail from the past and present. Could that be enough to start a case against him? I’m not asking compensation for myself, just for my children and their emotional well being.

  46. We had filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy back in February 2013. It was discharged in June of this year 2013. So all of the creditors we owe has been discharged. However, one creditor has broken a bankruptcy law and put a levy on all of my bank accounts that pretty much wiped clean for the amount of 15k. I had been so upset and sick to stomach how could we support ourselves and our children? It just happend on the 13th of September which fell on the weekend. It is pretty hard to go through the weekend without being able to have our finances to be comfortable. We were never been notified from the credior of a letter stating that they’d intent to levy which we never did received from them at all. So, my bankruptcy lawyer is working with me to work with the case to resolve. My question… should we sue the creditor for an emotional distress that has been causing us? We still haven’t uplifted the levy release on our bank accounts. It is pretty long to get it resolved.

    Please advise.

  47. I put my home up for sale with a real estate company in July. We had several people supposedly make offers but our realtor never presented anything in writing. We had several instances where the realtor strung us along stating that she had spoken to the potential buyers loan officer and everything was good but then nothing ever happened and she never really explained herself. Finally she brought a cash offer to us for many thousands less than our asking price. We accepted the offer with the understanding that certain items did not convey. The buyer wanted to move in 5 days prior to closing we said we would agree if they made a substantial deposit, she agreed that was a good idea. She then sent me the purchase contract to sign. The contract stated that the deposit was made so I signed agreeing to early occupancy for 5 days til closing. Two days after the buyer took possession we found that he backed out of the deal. Then we found that the people who moved in were friends of his. We went looking for the deposit And there had been no deposit. We were devastated, that was our home for 15 years and now there are strangers in it and we have to go through a heap of trouble to get them out and assess the damage. The sale was our ability to go back to school and further our careers, that was our future and now it’s gone. How can this not be undue stress, mental anguish. The realtor guided us right in to this with false statements. Now we have little hope for the future. We have to spend what little we have to get the people out and nobody will buy the home during this. WHAT DO WE DO?

  49. My girlfriend of 5 years has been cheating on me over the past few months. I had my suspicions but really had know proof. I hired a private investigator to help find information. Found out she was. When I met her she was down on her luck and started to help her financially. We ended up living together with me paying all expenses, house mortgage, utilities, her car payments, insurances. past rent owed by her. Let alone nice vacations, dinners, clothes, ect. Have I got stupid stamped on my forehead? Yes I do. It all came crashing down this past thanksgiving, when the investigators had pictures of them together. Basically she was making sure she had this guy hooked, before she threw me away like a piece of trash. I completely fell apart, drinking hard, popping pain killers, sleep meds, anything I could find. Found a .357 hand gun I had, got inside the shower , put the gun to the side of my head. Tried and tried to pull the trigger, but couldn’t do it. Not to my kids and grandkids. The thoughts are still there but were fighting. The thing is she has gone about her life with no remorse. On to the next sap. I did find out that not only 2 divorces she told me about, but 3 more. All ended the same way. Sucked you dry and on to the next. Many boy friends in between. I apologize for the length of this. Anyway, I feel completely screwed over, used, humiliated, even attempt at killing myself. Doing this to good caring people, over and over is just plain evil.

My brother, my daughter and myself have been living in the home as our primary residence; my daughter and myself for four years, we moved in to care for my mother when she became ill. Since informing us that the house was on the market, we have had to endure a constant barrage of people traipsing through or home while I am at work. Now that it’s in the closing stage, even more people such as contractors and inspectors are doing walk throughs and mind you, all of our personal effects are still throughout the house. We have no where live able to move to and no money do move with. Once the house sells, I will get about $5,000.00 to move and repair my home with and my home needs about $30,000 of repairs done on it because everything I made was invested into my mothers home to take care of her until she passed and afterwards, the brother who was still living there because he couldn’t take care of himself. What legal rights do I have on my side?
