HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.It does not matter about the prior case. Domestic Violence victims are typically intimidated by the abuser. And it is a pattern of offenses. I suggest that you do to the DA and tell them you want a restraining order, that you are sincere in wanting to get away from this abusive relationship. You will not be judged or charged with any type of crime based on the prior situation.I also suggest that you can contact a local group who works with victims of domestic abuse. You can get a list of those groups from your local Emergency Room or at the local library or YMCA. I suggest you may want to get involved with them because they are very good at helping victims not fall back into the same trap because of the abuser's intimidation or sweet talk.Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
