QUESTIONS

  • I was charged with an Assault 3 months ago. Will it ever be taken off of my record?
  • My boyfriend stole my phone while I was talking to my father. He was angry at me. I walked after him and asked for my phone back, reaching for it. Did I have the legal right to reach and grab for my personal property back?
  • I am planning to leave my partner, who is verbally and sometimes physically abusive. We live together with our 4 year old daughter. If I take my daughter to live somewhere else (in state) would it be considered kidnapping? I plan on getting an emergency order of protection the following day as soon as the court opens. I want to make sure I am not breaking any law by removing her from her home.
  • my ex and i have court appointed parenting time in family court. my ex keeps bringing her boyfriend around me during these exchanges and i have an OOP against him for threatening my life. my biggest question is i know he is violating law by doing that and can be arrested but is she in violation of some law in arizona by allowing it? FYI she has known about the OOP since it was issued and she helped fight it for him in court so "i didn't know about it" doesn't apply in this situation. im in fear that my ex is attempting to cause an issue by having him around when we exchange our children
  • 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)?
  • How do I go about renewing my Order of Protection if there haven't been any new incidents of domestic violence?
  • 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?
  • My husband was arrested after an arrangement we had we got kinda loud so the next door neighbor called the cops when they arrive my husband was already packed up and out the door he didnt put his hands on me but he did break the phone. I told the cops I didnt want him arrested. Why would they still take him and how can I get him out ASAP
  • Hi my name is Alycia Lee Bock I am very interested in getting involved in helping victims of domestic violence I suffered for 15 plus years and my goal is to share my story to help others can you give me information how I can get involved in my community thank
  • Can I press charges against someone who continually verbally abuses me through text message. Blocking is not an option since that person is a co-parent to a child.
