QUESTIONS

  • My husband has been mentally and physically abusive for the past 7 years. In January he punched me repeatedly in front of our five year son and kick the door in when I kicked him out. My oldest has told me that that he to was hurt by my husband. I've now lost my home(being evicted) and Job because of this. My parents live in another state where I have more opportunities to live a better life with my kids. Can I move to another state and Handel my DV case and divorce?
  • My girlfriend and I allowed her brother (a 300lb man) to crash with us after he got evicted. After about 2 1/2 weeks we realized this was a terrible idea and told him he needed to leave. He packed most of his things and left but took some things that didn't belong to him. Upon him returning for the last if his stuff, we told him he was not allowed to enter the premises and we would bring him his stuff. He got mad and tried to force his way into the house and my girlfriend fought him off. She got arrested for"hitting" him. Isn't this still a form of self defense considering he doesn't live here
  • What do I do if my spouse filed a domestic violence claim against me wrongfully? I have been out of the house for 3 weeks because she is the one who was abusive.
  • If a mother puts a restraining order against her sons girlfriend 4 months before he turns 18 and he doesn't want one put on her can he get it dismissed when he turns 18?
  • I just got charged with two counts of domestic violence. I don't know weather an appeal will do anything or not also if I compleat everything the judge order how much would a set aside cost me or do I even have a chance
  • How can an Injunction or Order of Protection be served if the person harrassing me does not have a specific address, but moves from one house to another (and those addresses are not known to me)?
  • I am divorcing my husband due to domestic violence against me & my daughter. Will I be able to keep the house without having to buy out his share?
  • My best friend is having issues with her husband. He drinks every day to the point of total intoxication. He is verbally abusive and demeaning to her. He has pushed her, head butted her and told her that he “should beat her ass”. He has maxed out her credit cards and does everything he can to financially entrap her. They have 2 children 13 and 15. She is afraid to leave the kids with him because of his drinking and because he is not dependable. My friend wants to leave but due to the financial position he continues to put her in, she cannot afford to get out. Is this considered DV? Options?
  • where do I go yo file a restraining order?
  • How do I go about renewing my Order of Protection if there haven't been any new incidents of domestic violence?
