First, thank you for your insight. I just re-read my "Question" and saw the ton of typos...Sorry about that. I was trying to get all the info out & didn't spell check. i'm glad you could figure it out.
I didn't click onto the Florida bar referral Program yet, as I wasn't sure if in doing so it would cut us off. But do you buy any chance know what an attorney might charge for this type of thing? A ball-park number would be ok, i won't hold you to it. Just curious what it may run me.
Also, I feel like i should do something, the only thing that came to mind was a restraining order. Is there another thing or something other than that i could do? Or is the restraining order the best bet? I say this because as i mentioned my brother has an aweful temper. I feel if i don't do something, he will keep on blowing up at people. Plus he did get physical with me before ( if spitting in my face counts) & now with the threat. If you could hear his voice when he mentioned throwing me through plate glass...well it was damn scary.
I guess my question really also is, do you think going this route is a good idea? I have never been in this situation before & am curious what an outsider thinks.
