Customer Question
I am disabled and...

I am disabled and my husband abanoned me March 2, 2017. He is an alcoholic and pulled a gun on me a couole of weeks before he left. His parents came and got me. No attorney will take on a domestic case without money I do not have, so in the alternative, he committed crimes against me. Can I have him arrested.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you have any upcoming court dates on the abandonment charges?

Nothing because I didn't have the money.

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did the abandonment occur?

NC and I've called everyone. The retirement is half mine and I would use it to go to Mayo Clinic. I am terminal, they think. OMG

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have a prenup so when he left, threre was nothing of his left.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Yes, if you were the victim of a domestic assault or battery, you can make a police report and have criminal charges pressed against him.

I see that you requested a phone call, I'd be happy to speak with you over the phone to discuss this matter further.

I'll send you the link for the phone call so we can continue. Thanks!
