After getting served a Temporary Restraining Order from

After getting served a Temporary Restraining Order from ex-wife, (who is just retaliating because I told her I would file a motion that she's in contempt of court for ignoring court ordered joint custody) she has lied on the affidavit...there is no validity to her accusations that I've threatened her whatsoever... At the hearing to make this a permanent order, how does the Judge decide when it's just going to be a "he said she said" because she cannot prove any of her claims, there are no witnesses, no police records, nothing...

I have been married for seventeen years 5 kids. I have a

Hi I have been married for seventeen years 5 kids. I have a husband that says he loves me to death and is amazing at times but if he feels criticized or stress he lashed out at me and rips me apart emotionally. I had an affair for many years that helped distract me from his behavior and numbed me. I told him about it so now he uses this as extra extra material to attack and destroy me whenever he feels stressed. I know I deserve some of it but he is really abusive with his attacks and words and threats to destroy me and the kids if I leave him. Can I get a restraining order to push him to get the correct help and medication so he doesn't verbally abuse me and the kidsJA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And has the behavior been documented in any way?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: I got him backeracted once for verbally attacking me daily after he found out about the affairJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I want to stay with him but he needs major help and he won't get it.

Hi, I am a 59 year old Australian and have been married to a US citizen for almost 5 years. I have contributed no money to the marriage. I left my job in Aust. to marry my husband and live with him in Kauai. I have not earned money in 5 years. My husband is quite wealthy. He owns the house we live in (worth about $3-4 million) and my name is ***** ***** any documentation regarding this. Our marriage is on the brink of breaking up. I have no idea what I am entitled to as if we split up I will return to Aust and have no home, no money, and as I am about to turn 60, my job opportunities are diminished. I would very much appreciate advice. Thanks.

What can I do if my ex husband is trying to dictate what I

What can I do if my ex husband is trying to dictate what I do? For example, my mother lives with me and my 3 children. He sent a text saying to keep my mother's boyfriend away from his kids, even though the boyfriend comes around once every two weeks for just a few hours and is no threat to the kids. He also does not want other people around the kids, stating he is giving his "one and only warning" about keeping certain people, that are of NO threat, away from the kids . He says if I do not follow his instructions, he is going to basically ruin my name at my job (I am an educator) and tell people I am a cheater and "expose my secret" during our divorce.What can I do to get him to stop? I filed a restraining order and it was denied bc he is not threatening me. However, he is threatening my job...how I support me and my three children...He is wanting to expose what he felt was an affair during our divorce (untrue) and make everyone think bad of me and get me potentially fired. What legal action can I take? This needs to stop.
