QUESTIONS

  • If a relative has lived in your home for than a year and domedtic violence was involved, do i have to give her notice before I get rid of her belongings
  • I have a court hearing over a domestic batteryou case and I was just served papers telling me to appear 1 hour before hearing to give my fingerprints and photo should I be concerned?
  • im 16 and after my dad tried to kill me i now my mom who has full custody of me. i dont want to live here anymore i have to share a room with two other people, my mom drinks, and here boyfriend verbally abuses my little sisters. i would like to live with my aunt who lives in another state to have full custody of me without being emancipated, anyway i could do that?
  • My parents kept seeing maks on my body assuming it was from being beat when really it was from aggressive sexual activities with my fiancé. Even though I told them it wasn't abuse I was embarrassed and afraid to tell them otherwise, so when they filed a report against my fiancé stating that he was hurting me and after I begged them not to do so they made it seem like they had already picked him up and took him in so when I spoke to the officer I was extremely distraught and went along with it anyways. He faces a hearing is there anyway I can stop this from happening,
  • 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?
  • 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?
  • Recently, I have been put under a the protection of a restraining order with out my consent. It lasts one year and I do not wish to remain under it for that long. I'm going to turn 18 in a few months. Is it possible to take the protection of the restraining order off of me when I turn 18?
  • Is it possible to remove a domestic violence charge from my record to stop having a delay when I purchase firearms?
  • My baby mom got a order of protection against me for both her and my son. After my 1 hr supervised visitation she is required to leave the area immediately but she waits around. The director of the program witness and she made a 3rd party affidavit confirming that she waits when she shouldn't. She also says she hears the extremely inappropriate things my son says. She made a police report stating I was following her BUT she should of been 20 minutes away from the area . I got arrested beat the case and now I want legal actions done against her ? What would be my first step What kind of lawyer
  • I am not married to my daughters father, we recently split due to domestic violence. I am talking with him and his lawyer to get a resolution before our temporary orders hearing. The only term we are not agreeing on is that I want to stipulate that my daughter and I can relocate to Colorado in a year. His attorney keeps saying the courts will not accept that even if we come to an agreement on everything else before our court date. I spoke to an attorney who told me the opposite. How do I word this to his attorney or is his attorney right?
