QUESTIONS

  • Can I get an order of protection against my husband for verbally and emotionally abusing me and our teen daughter? There is no act of physical violence, but there was a reported act if violence five years ago. Although I don't have any fears if him hurting us physically there is almost daily verbal abuse, yelling, name calling, etc.
  • What do I need to do to change one of my daughters last name. My domestic partner is not the biological father but he has been there with my daughter and i since about 3 months into my pregnancy. My daughter currently has my last name but both my partner and i want to change her last name to his. Her biological father isnt in the birth certificate nor in her life. And she is 1. What are the steps to change her last name?
  • What is the distance of a injunction
  • I recently went through a child custody hearing. In the judges ruling, he claimed that I was convicted of Domestic Violence and that I was abusing te legal system by reporting Domestic violence by my ex. I have never been charged but my ex has been 12 times with 5 convictions and 5 other charges dismissed as part of plea agreements. Do I have any recourse against the judge?
  • In an order of protection, how many feet does it grant/rule for the abuser to stay away from me?
  • I have an order of protection against my ex. I have filed for bankruptcy. I have a lawsuit the he filed against me, and I a counter suit against him. I've included his lawsuit against me in my bankruptcy; even though it never went to trial. His attorney wants a deposition with me with his client present - which is whom I have the order of protection against. What are my legal rights to protect myself? I don't want to meet in my attorneys office because I am afraid of this man. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
  • On Thanksgiving day of 2017. My ex fiance assaulted me at a circle k. Police report was filed. He's mother took gaurdainship of are daughter. So when I visit the minor I'm really nervous. Can there be order of protection against my ex and his fiance and can I put my minor child on the protection?
  • 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?
  • My name is Ana, I have 3 children and my ex the father of my 2 younger girls his new girlfriend harassed me in a public parking lot, in front of my 3 children age (5 6,9) will i have to call cps ? Already doing an order of protection. His girlfriend punched me bout 10 times in my head with my children being there. The father was not there, but they both live together. If i placed an order of protection how will that work if my ex the father lives with her? I'm at a total loss.
