DEAR DEIDRE: I’M back home in Britain after escaping an abusive relationship in America.
But now my ex-husband is demanding nude webcam videos if I want to see my daughter again.
For more advice from Dear Deidre
No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.
I am 35 and was married to a 37-year-old guy in the US for four years.
I didn’t get a green card because I did not know I had to.
We had a daughter together, who is three, but my controlling ex didn’t let me have any say in her life. He soon became violent.
In the end, I got so depressed I fled back to England.

Every problem gets a personal reply, usually within 24 hours weekdays.
I couldn’t get my daughter a passport, so I had to leave her behind.
Because I don’t have a green card, I can’t get back into America.
Now my ex is saying he won’t let me see my daughter unless I pose nude for him.
What can I do?
DEIDRE SAYS: Please do not pose nude for your ex – he is still trying to control you and he will only demand more, and worse. You must seek legal advice.
It must be heartbreaking not to have contact with your daughter.
