A: It is up to the Judge how much time in anger management you need. Are you represented by counsel? If not you need to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney with extensive domestic violence trial experience. If you do not, you are making a very serious mistake.

A: Your ex filed a domestic violence complaint against you and alleged that you have anger management issues. After taking testimony on her complaint, I am guessing that the judge ruled against you and as part of his ruling, required you to attend anger management. I dont know if the judge limited the anger management to 4 hours or if he stated that you needed to complete the program. I also dont know if the judge stated that once you completed the anger management, he wanted you to come back before him to address other issues but the most important thing for you to do is get clarification on the anger management - whether the order limits it to 4 hours or completion of the program.
