Thank you so much. That's basically what happened. In an ex parte order (I'd responded to the motion but opposing counsel didn't tell the judge that I had, and because I live so far away, it got there hours after she ruled on it), I was ordered to comply with discovery (which I'd never received). Opposing counsel refused to provide me with it. Then, he filed a Motion For Contempt. By the hearing date, I had complied, but I had redacted information that would allow my husband to locate me (for example, I sent my lease, but redacted the address. I sent my bank/credit card statements, but redacted identifying stores or rental payments which gave away the name of where I lived. I redacted the name of my employer.) At the hearing, I was given 10 days to close my accounts and provide the account numbers or I was told my pleadings would be stricken. I could very briefly afford an attorney and she filed a motion for protective order. The judge denied it -- even knowing about the injunction for protection. I complied again with discovery, but still redacted my residential and work address, and any store identifying information on credit cards or my lease. If I did not do so, my husband would have killed me. His attorney then moved to strike ALL my pleadings and the judge granted it. She also barred me from participating in my own divorce. Then, my husband went to a final hearing and got awarded ALL the assets, plus $10,000 in attorney's fees, plus an additional $10,000 in "equitable distribution" that was completely fraudulent since he excluded the family business from his table. Now, he has the right to track me down to collect on the judgment. I'm appealing, but that could take years.
If I've understood everything you've said correctly, then the judge had the right to strike all my pleadings and bar me from participating in my own divorce, just because I wouldn't give up my home/work address. Even though to do so would have meant death for me! Do I now have it right?
