A: I’m guessing from your question that you might not be a citizen yet. Immigrants have the same rights to protection from abuse orders as anyone else, but you should talk to an attorney who knows about domestic violence, immigration and family law. In Lancaster, there is a program called the Domestic Violence Legal Clinic. You want to understand your rights in support and in divorce. If they cannot help, they should be able to refer you an attorney who can. Good luck!

A: These are questions you should be asking your lawyer. With limited information it is impossible to tell you definitively how to protect your rights. I urge you to consult with your lawyer regarding your concerns, or, if you weren't represented, then consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area. In the meeting the lawyer can review your specific situation and give you well-informed advice.
