I have an order of protection hearing tomorrow. My client's

I have an order of protection hearing tomorrow. My client's mom was inpatient at a mental hospital. She was recently released, and she is my client's primary witness. The abuser's attorney called me today and told me he plans to subject my client's mom to a brutal cross-examination. He said he plans to drill her about her mental health issues since she babysits the couple's minor children. We want the minor children to be included in the order of protection, if it is granted. How do I protect the client's mom during the cross-examination? What kinds of objections should I make?

I am a 100% disabled veteran, living in New Mexico. I have

I am a 100% disabled veteran, living in New Mexico. I have been legally married for over 30 years. I have been physically separated for about the last 2 1/2 years. My wife left me with 2 of our 3 children, That is, I have the kids. the 3rd is an adult living on his own. I have been paying her a monthly stipend for her own support, which comes to about 1/4 of my total income. My sole income is from VA Disability (I'm a %100 disabled veteran) and Social security disability.. The amount I have been sending her every month is a little over 1/4 of that combined. Once the divorce is finalized, I will lose several hundred dollars of the VA disability, as they pay me married with children rates. Am I asking for (legal) trouble if in a pro se filing, I offer spousal support less than what I have been sending, based on the fact that my income will go down? I have heard, but never confirmed, that this particular income stream is not countable in determining alimony/spousal support. True? Or wishful thinking?

This is between South Carolina and Georgia. My daughter and

This is between South Carolina and Georgia. My daughter and son-in-law are in Georgia and have joint custody of his daughter from a previous marriage who lives with her mother and step father in SC. The daughter has told my daughter and son in law that she is fearful of her mother and step father (he had a court order not to touch her at one point because of his drinking problem) because the step father has relapsed and is screaming and threatening her as is her mother. My daughter and son in law went to SC yesterday to her school and spoke with the counselor as well as school administration. They were told that the SC equivalent of DFAC's would talk to the child and remove her if she felt she was in danger. However, the child told the counselor she was afraid her mother was going to hurt her and the counselor told my daughter that if she wasn't afraid she'd be killed they couldn't remove her from the home. The counselor also told the child she could not, according to state law, reveal their conversation to the mother. She called last night and told the mother and the child was verbally abused again. My son in law is an officer in GA and called the sheriffs dept in SC and was told DFAC's does not remove them, the sheriffs dept does. AT this point they are getting the run around, the mother is threatening the child and my daughter an son in law have no idea what else to do.
