Not exactly FAMILY COURT, since we were not married: we have

Not exactly FAMILY COURT, since we were not married: we have been partners for 30 years and I was totally and financially dependent upon him. During that time, I have put up with his physical abuse, harassment and threats, because I was fearful of the consequences, and going out on my own. I was alienated from my friends and family, by phone and contacts.About 6 weeks ago, I went to Superior Court in AZ and I was granted an Order of Protection for one year. The Police escorted him out of our Apartment in less than an hour, and all his things are still here, and I haven't tried to locate him because I'm not supposed to. I don't know where he is, but, our rent is due (he co-signed on our lease) and I don't know if he is responsible for half. I only have a small SS income, which doesn't pay many of my bills.

We are in the state of New York. My friend was repeatedly

We are in the state of New York. My friend was repeatedly threatened by his 18 years old adopted daughter, and finally in May she told him she was poisoning him by adding nail polish remover into his olive oil. He was very ill all that time. He is afraid to be home because she said she will accuse him and put him in jail. He filed an order of protection, and today he had a hearing. She attended the hearing, and said she agrees to move out, but needs child support. She intentionally was left for the second year in school twice, and states that she is a student, although she attends about 50% (just enough not to be expelled). The judge ordered a hearing for Friday and ordered him to bring his income taxes. He is 60 years old and had a very tragic life. His wife died half a year after the adaption. He devoted his life to her, and, as of today she is the only inheritor he has, and she repeatedly threatens him. She told him many times that by the time she is 18 he will be either dead or in jail. Lawyer tells him he cannot be in the same house with her, but, if he pays 17% of his salary he will struggle to pay for his own living. How can he protect himself, and how long he will have to pay, since she intentionally does not go to school or work?JA: Jewel is in her early-twenties, she is 23. I'm trying to find the right Family Lawyer for you right now. As soon as they are ready, I will let you know.Customer: She is 18, she will be 19 on July, 1stJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New York. And, as I said, he was totally devoted to her, and still is, but she told him, she was poisoning him, and knows hitmen, and can kill him, when he is asleep, all accuse him and put him in jail.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: He hired a lawyer night before the hearing, and lawyer says he has no choice but to go to court on Friday. He is also in danger of loosing his job, if he starts missing days to go to court. Will they go after his personal assets then to pay her?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Family Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.Customer: How much is the whole amount?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: She says (and she does) have friends in police precinct. Her boyfriend was a student in John Jay criminal justice college and took toxicology, his family is on public assistance. She is also under the influence of a women, who came to his house, when his wife was dying, and said, she will take care of the child. She taught the girl to call her mom, and was sure he will marry her. After his morning year was over, he met me. He knew me since I was 3 years old, he was our neighbour, and the women told her that I am a witch, and came from hell. She repeatedly threatened to kill me, and I stopped going to their place. She was in a private boarding school and was expelled for stealing. I did not see him often, and he basically did not maintain our relationship, because we did not want to disturb her. He called me in May after she told him, she was poisoning him. He is panically scared for his life, and now I am scared too. Meanwhile, the judge is looking at ordering chil support and have her move out. How is it going to make him safe, if she is openly goes after his property and the lady and her boyfriend tell her that once she gets the money they will buy a house? She told me many times that she is not her to work or study, and that he will pay, no matter, where he will be. She was adapted from Ukraine, when she was 7. Does not call herself by the name they gave her. has only one 68 or 70 grade in drama/theater classJA: 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 Family Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
