Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
As far as what an attorney can do for you, that very much depends on what it is that you are seeking to accomplish. What do you want to do, ultimately?

The situation has changed since I last wrote this. He was arrested for felony aggravated assault for an incident last week towards me and I had no other choice but to call the police. I have a protecton order, a no contact order, and I will be a witness against my husband in a criminal case. I was going to hold off on the divorce (because I am a full time student and having to go through all this) but me and my attorney are asked to file first. So now I have that to add to all this. I would like to know if I can sue federally against him because I am disabled and when he would beat me he always stated "No one will believe you b/c you have a mental illness and also he called me "retarted" while abusing me physically and verbally. Is there anything federally that I can do after all that I have endured. Thank you.

Hi,
Thank you for your follow-up. I am sorry but sue federally for what exactly? And why federally, exactly, and not via state courts?
