The declaration was filed with the court on Thursday (July 15) and will be submitted to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department when Mel's legal team presents evidence next week.

According to TMZ, Robyn writes, "Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage."  Robyn also says there was never any violence by Mel against any of their children.
