Good afternoon to all. I’ve been reading the feeds of forumosa for the past 7 or 8 years and have enjoyed browsing through the broad range of topics that are available here. I’ve finally come to a point during my life in Taiwan where I myself would like to contribute my finding and also ask for suggestions regarding a potential law-suit against my second ex-wife who is also the mother of my first child. I am open to going deeper into personal matters on this feed if deemed necessary. I also think it is important to let the participants on this feed know that I am the Indian guy that sat nude on a rock in the middle of Taipei and would prefer not to dive into that topic on this feed as it might not hold much relevance here.
My question is quite simple with a few complexities. Here I go…
Is it possible to file a report for domestic violence/assault that happened during my previous marriage after 3 years of the act happening?
An incident occurred between my ex and I a little over 3 years ago when her family refused to allow me to take our child back to my place of residence and back to his kindergarten the next morning.
I had taken a camera with me to record the conversation because I was concerned that her family may have been up to some shady nonsense without my knowledge [Mid 2016]. I tried to communicate with her to the best of my ability and was met with unfriendly behavior from her and her family. She eventually came to a point where she lashed out at me and attacked my shoulder and the mid/lower back. The entire incident had been recorded and I had taken the matter to the police within the following hour only to be met with some unfriendly police that preferred not to waste their time on such matters. My ability to communicate with the police was very limited and I left without filing a report and didn’t visit the hospital as I didn’t sustain much injury. I had not followed up on the matter of filing a police report and instead made an effort to retain communication with my kids mother after that incident.
My wife at the time was holding another relationship during our marriage [2015-2017]. That relationship came to an end when her mother informed the members of the other household that she was still married to me [mid 2017]. She then entered another relationship within a month of breaking up with the previous partner and continues to hold the current relationship til present. We divorced in the month of January 2018 and I had signed full custody for our child over to her hoping that she would be a loving and sensible mother.
Our relationship has been mostly friendly since our divorce and I have had more opportunities to see our child at the expense of surrendering my ARC [spouse based]. I am not holding a degree or certificates that would allow me to enter employment in Taiwan. I am currently unemployed and borrowing money from my girlfriend in my efforts to stay here and continue seeing my child. I have been rejected for a gold card ARC application [early 2019] as I do not meet the requirements for it to be approved. I have requested my kids mother to share custody with me on many occasions only to be met with her going back and forth on the matter.
She has recently turned our relationship upside down even further by refusing to respond to my messages and answer my calls [early/mid 2019]. I have made attempts to visit her home from time to time to find out how are son is, only to be met with more unfriendly acts and abuse. My most recent visit ended with her telling me to leave and telling me that she was moving and wouldn’t let me see our son again [September 2019]. I waited nearby and my son came onto the street side shortly after his mother went to shower and he and I rode away. We stayed together at my girlfriends place for a couple of weeks. My kid is close to 7 years of age and has entered his first year of elementary school. The elementary school and a children’s social worker have since contacted and met with me in an effort to have my kid returned to school [mid September 2019]. My kid is currently back in school again and has been returned back to my ex’s household for the time being. He says he hates living with his mother and her family and would like to live with me instead. I have told him that I am short on money at the moment and that I would like to have him back together with me when my circumstances are stable again. The school teachers have provided me with a phone number to contact the classroom so that I may contact and speak with him as his mother has blocked me from all mediums of contact. Recommendations and knowledge would be appreciated.
