QUESTIONS

  • Can I leave the county with my daughter if I am trying to better my life by getting out of a violent marriage that I am divorcing from anyway?
  • My aunt just got guardian ship of me. My father that adopted me still has custody of my aunt and I are constantly fighting she threatens to send me back to him. Now that I am 16 can move out of my aunt's house and move back in with my biological father that is her brother?
  • I filed for a order of protection 2/18 & defendant filed to drop it (heating 3/4). Judge said there were 2 violations since OP was granted but since I replied to his saying he was sorry to hear about the death of my 23 yr. old cat (no law says I can't contact him!) he/Judge said he's only guilty of one violation ...yet he firmly told defendant to leave me alone & granted his request to dismiss the Order of Protection. What can I do about this injustice? By the way we are a bit racial couple
  • where do I go yo file a restraining order?
  • How do I apply for help? I called 480-xxx three times waited for over an hour each time and was hung up onthree times. I am ttrying to apply on line and no way to apply. I am on disability am a single mom with three children. Their dad is abusive. I need sole custody and I need help please call me back.
  • If someone was convicted of domestic violence 3 years ago, can they by any way file any motions to get the fines reduced by the court? or file for any motions to set aside the conviction?
  • Can he still pick up my kids from school even tho I have a protective order
  • I see a lot of doctrine that establishes the means of acquiring a Protection Order, but I see nothing in regards to the ramifications of filing a false one. So my question is; does filing a false Protection Order, also include immunity from prosecution? Is there any justice for anyone who has been the victim of a system remedy, which has been abused to the point where it has become weapon, rendering it ineffective? Its ironic that a system created to help victims, in turn makes victims. Was that the intended purpose, to deprive fathers of their children and create a plethora problems?
  • CAN A PLAINTIFF (VICTIM) BE ARRESTED FOR TALKING TO THE DEFENDANT WITH THE ORDER OF PROTECTION IN PLACE
  • I had to leave a rental property because of an order of protection. The problem is that I had already paid in full the hole lease in advance. The law states that he is supposed to refund my money in case of a domestic violence issue. I have not received any money from him or the return of my security deposit either and he is refusing to pay me. What do I do to get my money he owes me back?

STORIES
