I have a Domestic violence
protective order against me and I need to write my written response, not sure how to go about it
JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, don't have the money to pay for one now, I'm unemployed
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: well My husband and I got into a fight and although the kids didn't see it when it was heated, they saw him leave and run out of the house. He called the police and went to the emergency room because while struggling to push me out from behind the door and leave, he bruised is hand against the door. He stated on the DVPO that he had physical custody
of the children at the time of the filing and the judge granted him the temporary order
for 10 days. The sherrif came over and threw the kids and I out of the house and the hearing date is this 26th. Now, I am aware that he went to withdraw the order but child protective services was called because he alleged that I constantly verbally abuse him in front of the kids. The judge said he will wait till the hearing date before he dismisses the order and I just carefully read the entire document and realized my need to give them a written answer.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
