Q: I’m looking for an attorney to help me stop harassment- threatening (position as a mother)-mental abuse- lies- defaming
I just filed a ppo and 3rd parties against my ex that we have 2 previous domestic violence but I dropped in 2010 bc the court didn’t do anything after he broke his ppo 4x and the 2nd I didn’t show from fear etc. I want to press charges against both my ex and his girlfriend and will show up this time. I want this to end. I was diagnosed with ptsd and want to heal and live on peace and until something is done it doesn’t seem I will. I have a lot of documents. I’d also like to reopen my 2021 domestic as it’s still relevant as my kids are being told I’m the abuser and I’m a lier etc by my abuser and his girlfriend. I’m also having rumors being spread about my to my fiancé that I’m cheating which isn’t true.
A: You should contact your county prosecutor's office. You should also contact the police concerning any new allegations. Whether the prosecutor will "reopen" the 2021 case is discretionary and will depend on how they feel they can prove that case. Whenever you don't show up, resulting in a dismissal, you create a situation where a defense attorney is going to raise motive against you.
