A few weeks ago, my ex filed an ex-parte DVRO, claiming

Hi. A few weeks ago, my ex filed an ex-parte DVRO, claiming harassment via email. The Court denied the ex-parte saying that, although some emails are unfriendly, there aren't any threats, cussing, etc. Now, I have the hearing tomorrow. Because I have no money, I've had to represent myself for 2 years, including the trial, etc. I am able to hold my own for the most part, but this is the first time something like this happened and I am really scared that, for whatever reason, she convinces the judge to issue a RO, it will impact my ability to seek work, volunteer at my kid's school, etc. I just noticed in the claim, she mentioned that I threw stuff multiple times and said "she will elaborate" at the hearing. Although I have never thrown anything at her, ever, I have a feeling that one of her friends would act like a witness and lie about any or all claimed incidences. I haven't been provided with any evidence, statements, depositions, etc., from any witness about said incidences. My question is, for tomorrow's hearing, are they allowed to bring a witness in last minute? Or bring any other evidence, statements, etc., about said incidences without ample warning? I am just trying to prepare to protect myself, legally, if they pull something like this. Like objecting, etc. Thanks

I'm scared and I don't know what to do. I have been married

I'm scared and I don't know what to do. I have been married for almost 12 years and I have an 8 year old daughter. My husband is mean, verbally abusive, aggresive, he breaks and punches things at home, he has several times threatened to kill my family and he threatens to hurt and make my life impossible.Today was the same. He punched and broke the laundry door, he threw the iPad, he called me a stupid bitch and he stormed off. All this occurs in front of our daughter. I cancelled his bank cards because when he does this he usually goes off drinking, threatens to kill himself and that I'll never see him again.I'm tired of being in this situation. But, I don't know what to do. He is a medically retired correctional officer. Even when he drives drunk they don't give him DUI's. They simply esort him home. I'm scared he will take our daughter away from me. Many times she is scared of him, and she cries that what if I can't hear when she is sick at night and I can't give her medicine or breathing treatments.What can I do?
