If you have been subpoenaed to appear in court, you need to appear or you could be found in contempt. You should contact whoever is prosecuting the case, or whoever subpoenaed you as a witness and express your concerns. Your input as the victim should be taken into account. I hope that helps!
It depends (I know, not the answer anyone wants). For just a cuatody exchange the answer is no. However, in my experience if something gets said that isnt custody related the answer is yes. Which is why so many family attorneys recommend custody exchanges at police stations in these types of...Read more »
I am not sure how. No contact, as a condition of bail or otherwise means that if either of you did the other could report you. If its a condition of bail it could lead to bail being revoked. If its an order of court one or both could be held in contempt.

Unfortunately, this is a mess, as you well know. The challenge is you are reacting to his moves so your credibility is at issue. The officer does not have to charge if there are significant cresibility issues. What I would suggest is you contact your counties womens support organization....Read more »
Depends on the status of the PFA. If its still a temp he can argue you arent really afraid of hom since you keep contacting him. Additionally, if he is contacting you in response to you contact it makes it harder fornyou to argue he is in contempt. If you get a PFA against someone you cant get...Read more »

If the abuse is *physical* abuse, you should contact the Children & Youth agency for the county in which your sister lives. Even if it's only mental/emotional abuse, I'd contact that agency and let someone know what's going on. Hopefully they'll open up an investigation...Read more »
