Bowling Green, KY asked in Domestic Violence for Kentucky

Q: EPO filed last night against my husband, he was arrested. I go to court in 2 weeks for the DVO. I’m scared

...he’ll do what he always does and be petty. Some manipulation and gaslighting to make himself seem like a victim. Police took pictures, I have pictures from a previous incident. My daughter has never seen any abuse, she is a happy little person..but what if he try’s to have my daughter taken bc I had him arrested and am following through with the process of obtaining a DVO.

A: He can’t take your daughter, especially with a DVOpending. You need to stand up to him once and for all. Start by hiring a lawyer to go to the hearing with you. Then, seriously consider filing fir divorce and custody.
