Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and welcome, Jimmy.
I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation, but admire your desire to do the right thing as an example for your children. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest information and not necessarily to tell you what you wish to hear. There may be a delay between your follow ups and my replies as I review your responses and prepare your answer.
It sounds as though you are more concerned about the perpetrator being brought to justice rather than seeking compensation from her, is that correct? Was it necessary to seek medical attention for your injuries after she punched you?
yes. it's not about money to me. any money that it would cost me to bring justice to this case would be the only thing I care about (realistic/actual).
no medical attention was needed. I was just shocked that she actually took a swing at all.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Note: Please feel free to request me if you have future legal questions by going to your “My Questions” page and clicking on “Request Tina again” next to my photo. I look forward to hearing from you again.
I accept your response as a valid one, but not really what I was looking for at this time. Not trying to avoid a rating or pay out. Just don't think this is what I was looking for. I already have links to paperwork for a peace order. Fear, nor is monetary compensation, are valid or necessary here.
Like I said, your answer was generally a valid one - for general advice, but not what I need. I pretty much had everything up to the point we are at. I appreciate your time, Tina.
