i am a 17-1/2 year old minor in Illinois. I live with my mom and she is my primary custodian. She has a civil order of protection
against my father who is a domestic abuser. I am not tied to that order as the judge said it is entirely up to me whether or not i want to have any contact with my father. I do not! I hate him he abused me and my mother
for 17 years. When I officially turn 18 my mother and I are moving to another state. Her divorce
is almost over. I cant take it anymore here in Illinois, I have nightmares every day and I am an emotional wreck with the thought of my dad hurting her. What would happen if I move to the state she is planning on moving to and live with family members before I turn 18? She is ok with it but she said she can't freely give me her permission. I will be safe and in good hands to finish school and try and rid myself of the bondage he has kept us under.
JA: Soon. I'm trying to find the right Lawyer for you right now. As soon as they are ready, I will let you know. Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Like what? She has a civil order of protection for herself only. Judge said I do not have to have contact with him if I choose not to. I never talk to him and he tries to text me. A month ago he said I was dead to him.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just need to get out for my health and I do not want to be forced to return.
