Seriously? Has he been threatening you from jail?

A argument with my husband and myself went a little too far on his end. EMS was called and the sheriff also arrived, by this time my husband had left. The sheriffs office arrested him for assault on a female, a judge then set his bond and ordered him no contact with me. I didn’t want the charges,... Read more »
If an argument with your husband resulted in a legitimate and reasonable need for you to be checked out by EMS - then your calling it 'going a little too far' is likely a clear screaming indication of your improper denial of the seriousness of the event. A seriousness that apparently your family...Read more »
I have audio recording of physical abuse, pictures of the abuse, and a hospital visit for one injury. The cheating I only have screenshots of mild conversations and a screenshot of his location when he was in a hotel room with a prostitute.

You don'r 'file for separation' in NC so you don't have to worry about that.
