QUESTIONS

  • What if my husband has control over my phone and computer with media scanner on them? i can rename a file or try to reset my phone or computer and all the same info are still on them. i have tried to do this with my phone while my husband is in another part of our trailer and he gets mad at me and says if i ruin his phone he'll break mine?
  • I can't afford an attorney even through the modest means program & no one is willing to help me pro bono. I filed for divorce from my abusive husband & we reached a settlement agreement on 4/28/16. But he continues to use the judicial system to make false accusations against me & keep me in court. How can I stop this harassment, and why won't any attorneys help me pro bono? So many claim to be DV advocates but no one is advocating for me & my daugher.
  • If an Injunction of Harassment is dropped in Superior Court, can I re-apply due to not having enough evidence? Or appeal it? What are my options? Thanks for your help/info.
  • My wife has a friend she's working for about 15 years. They talk a lot after everyone leaves the office the day. About 5 months ago the woman broke down and told my wife her husband has been beating her for 20 yrs she showed my wife several bruises her stomach and told my she's afraid leave because her husband said he will kill her. I know this is how abusers keep their spouses aroun. Is there some place I can find statistics on how many abusers say this and how many actually carry it out? Also if she went the police and the courts the day he hit her and showed the bruises would he be arrested
  • In an order of protection, how many feet does it grant/rule for the abuser to stay away from me?
  • 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,
  • I just found out that my son is on two restraining orders against each other how do i fix this mibe was filed FIRST
  • Where can I find previous restraining orders records? Trying to gather all possible evidence that my ex has a pattern of domestic violence. I know all of us 3 women who he has been with filed for an order of protection and experienced domestic abuse. He beat me up when I was pregnant with our son and our son came out early and is now in NICU. I want to do everything possible to protect my child.
  • I went to my acoholic ex-husbands to check on him. He had given me a key. I entered his apartment after calling and leaving messages and knocking. After I entered the apartment I was attacked and beaten. The police came. I never hit him. I end up in the hospital for the night with facial trauma and lacerations to my had with broken glass in it still. The police said I could not file charges on him because I was in his residence. He tried to kill me. What can I do?? I have cut all connections with him and am not answering any of his call to me or his children. I am scared.
  • can i change my mind about an order of protection that i got from the family court in phoenix. if so, how do i do that. Also can i rent an apartment with my roommate that i got the Order of Protection on before the order is terminated by the court?
