    So i wanted to know what can be done legally about a problem i've had for 34 years. My older sister has abused me physically and mentally as well as emotionally since i was very little and she has also stolen my personal indentification info and ran up a bill (over 1000$) in my name without my knowledge (until after) or consent (EVER)! She has also threatened and harrassed me many times over the years! As well as taken away my right to see my nieces, and bad mouth me to them, whenever she decided to get mad at me! At one time i let her borrow a car for her and my ex brother in law to use and they took it apart and sold it for parts and they never asked and i never saw a dime of the money they made from it, however much it was! Should i even do anything about any of this or should i make her pay for what she has done! Which it cause me lots of emotional problems like being fearful of people and has made my credit bad from her fraud and out right stolen from me and she has also slandered me to who ever would listen! Thank you for your time!

    Contact the police about the identity theft, then do what should have happened a long time ago and cut this sister out of your life. Seriously, why still remain involved with her? Therapy to figure out why you still associate with her would also be highly recommended.

    I agree. Why would you even remotely consider keeping this woman in your life

    I've asked people before who had an abusive family member the same question and the answer was a shocked look and "because we're FAMILY!"

    I can understand (to some extent), especially if the abuse isn't known and isn't obvious to the rest of the family, it can cause problems and estrangement with the rest of the family. However this sibling has gone way beyond tolerating this behavior and if you don't do something it will get worse.

    I have cut her out but she has still found ways to get to me! like through my nieces and on Facebook, which is the only way to keep in contact with my nieces! I just recently found out that she has befriended alot of my friends and i find that quite odd considering she's alot older than me besides the fact that she has no reason to be friends with them. Also she mimicked me and it just makes me feel like i have a stalker or something. She'd love nothing more than to get me all riled up and then smash my face in! I just wish everyone could act like mature adults and just live their own lives and completely forget all about me!

    Also i get abused by the rest of the family as well, i am what is called "the black sheep"! Has happened my whole life which also why i have nothing to do with any of my family (3yrs now) not just my sister with the exception of a niece! The relationship with niece is sporadic! I have a husband and son which is why i seek advice. I want to know if it is best to let it go and repair what i can myself or make her be held accountable for what she has done? If that can even happen, there is probably a statute that ran out already on all the things she has done to me or any of them for that matter!

    You have no legal right to talk to your nieces.

    I know it's hard when there is family involved but you best stop having any family in your life who are abusive & causing you problems. You have a husband & son as family. Focus on them.

    If talking to your niece on FB is causing problems, don't talk to your niece on FB. It really is that simple. Set your profile so your family can not see it and stop contacting them.
