I have an order of protection against my now ex boyfriend.

Hi,I have an order of protection against my now ex boyfriend. The hearing is tomorrow. I have text messages and Facebook messages where he flips between insulting my character, being inflammatory, and begging for me back (before he was served with the order). There was no physical threats or altercations during the times of the breakup. I removed myself from the residence until he was served with the order of protection and the eviction notice for my safety. What can I expect in court? What are things I should make sure to include?

My girlfriends father is physically and verbally abusive to

My girlfriends father is physically and verbally abusive to their family. He is threatening to kick them out of his home. He has taken loans out in my girlfriends name and has been involved with the cartel using his daughters name. Her mom stays with him because of the healthcare he gets from the military. Without it, they could suffer a lot because they have a heart condition that runs in the family. I don't know how to help them or if the legal system can help. Do you have any suggestions?
