Customer Question
Hi my name is...

Hi my name is Oralia ***** *****. I have a court date coming up on the 14th of March. It is to respond to a petition from my husband for a restraining order. I have several documents to show as proof of my innocence and would like to submit them to the court properly.

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

In the restraining order he requested that I be thrown from the home, that he be given full custody of the children and stay away orders. What happened on the day in question was I discovered he was out with another woman and I took bleach and sprayed his clothing. He finally returned home in the morning and I confronted him. At one point, I had gone into the kitchen to pick up several utensils I had dropped in my rush to get the bleach. I had them in my hand and he met me at the door. He began to say to me in a loud voice, "What are you going to do with that knife?" I did not answer because he sounded as if he was saying this for someone to hear. He continued, "You're going to stab me? No, No." He then dramatically turned to run out the front door. I stood and watched him. I was then certain that he was saying this for someone to hear so I walked to the door, closed it, and locked it.

Anything you have to present to the Court at the hearing, you need to make sure that you bring multiple copies. You must give a copy to your husband and/or his Attorney if he has one; then the other copy to the Judge's Courtroom Clerk; you would retain a copy. You would do this at the time of presentation of your case to the Judge. You would tell the Judge that you have evidence to show that your husband is lying about the incident and then give a copy to your husband or his Attorney and walk over and give a copy to the Clerk, who would then hand it over to the Judge for review.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
