Q: My ex and her mom took my cats to a shelter when I wasn't home because my gf and I got in a fight. I lived here; crime?
My ex and I got into a fight when my ex was mad at me that I decided to come home to use the bathroom before a new job. She thought I was going to be late. When I went to leave, she followed me to my car. She damaged my property. She hit my car window with her hand she kicked my car. She grabbed my door handle as I was trying to reverse. I kept telling her to stop and she didn't. I rolled down my window to tell her to stop again and she hit me in the face. After this happened, I opened my car door to create a distance from her and my car so I could leave. She then ran to my passenger side and got in. She then grabbed my arm and squeezed me so hard she left a bruise. I filed a police report in August in the city this happened in and they took photographic evidence. How come I was served a temporary order for protection against domestic violence on October 29 when she hit me? I am a teacher. I lost my ability to work with kids because of this domestic assault order. Please help me
I am so sorry you are going through this. These situations are never easy. Unfortunately, our firm practices family law and it seems like you may need to find an attorney who can assist you with a domestic abuse case.
I wish you all the best.
