Q: my father emotionally abuses me and my mother, I don't live at home is it possible to get a protective order?
my father is still my legal guardian
he has pointed a gun at me before
he has beaten my mother in front of me
I am terrified of him
he is diagnosed with anti social personality disorder (he's a sociopath)
he refuses to give me my legal documents SSA, Birth certificate, ID ect.
A: If you are an adult (age 18), you can get a protection order based on these facts. If you are a minor, your mother can get a protection order for her and you. You or your mother should get a lawyer to help you with this.
