Talk to the DA and see what, if anything, they are willing to do. Being afraid to talk with them, however, doesn't really make much sense given that you probably are the star witness against BF so as soon as he gets out he may come looking for you in order to stop or at least discourage you...View More
recent marriage and she has called me to yell at me for giving my son a sinus nasal spray, she doesn't communicate with me and tell me that she took my son to the ER, She told me that there is no court order that says she has to let my son talk to me?
A step parent has no legal authority over a child. The legal authority is reserved to the biologic or adoptive parents. Unless there is a court order, a new spouse married to an ex does not have any authority to decide how to raise the child and certainly cannot tell you whether you can or cannot...View More
My ex was very violent. Me and my current got in a very heated argument and I went into fight or flight because of ptsd. My current restrained me during the incident and some bruising was caused because of my struggle. I called the cops while still in a hysterical ptsd state of mind. I have mental... View More
Sorry but it is not up to you whether the charges are dropped or if the District Attorney proceeds to trial and attempts to get a criminal conviction. Actions have consequences - both for you and for him. You can talk to his criminal defense attorney if you wish to see what, if anything, you can...View More
my mom is constaltly recording me and threatening to send them to people that would include the police and the videos arent even bad it just me telling her I don't like what she is doing and after she hurt me and I have a scar from it she got a video of my crying and she says she will send...

Assuming you are clothed during these videos and are not otherwise involved in illegal activities, they are legal. Your mother is within her rights to record a conversation between the two of you. Oregon law is more murky as to whether she can record you when she is not part of the conversation....View More
I got into a fight with my boyfriend and he threw me down a few times and I fought back but gave him a bloody nose I got arrested but want to fight no guilty for self defense can they turn around and arrest him if I am found not guilty for self defense
Yes, they CAN arrest him, regardless of the outcome of your situation, but it is highly unlikely. The police officers that responded at the time made the decision to arrest you and not him. They could have arrested him; they could have arrested you; they could have arrested both of you; they could...View More
We previously had domestic violence issues that resulted from both of us escalating petty situations. He was arrested early this month for violating his probation and making contact with me. I want contact with him. We share a child. I do not want to go to this hearing and speak. Can I object to... View More
Actually a no contact Order IS a restraining order and while he can ask to have it lifted (you can't per se since the Order isn't directed at you), these sorts of requests are very common and are very rarely granted. You are under subpoena and your presence is NOT elective or voluntary....View More
You don't begin to provide enough information for anyone to even understand your situation let alone properly advise you.

My DV advacate tried to call the landlord for me and texted and left voicemail that they will pay the past due rent if 1600 but want a lease in my name and he evaded phone calls and we went to court the judge ruled for landlord because a third party promised to pay and that doesn't stop...

Asking the same question multiple times doesn't change the answer. The rental assistance protections you likely are thinking of was a COVID emergency program that expired last September and is no longer in effect.
Public defenders are notoriously over-worked and able to devote limited time to each client. A private attorney works for you and will put in as much time as they believe necessary, assuming you can afford to pay them.
The big issue is if you can afford a private attorney, you should not...View More
When we spoke to my mother she was very clear, not confused or disoriented.
She clearly communicated to the nurse that “I do not want to be here” “did not agree to what is happening or going on around here” “this was not my idea” “ i did everything I was asked to do, but I do... View More
A tenant awakes to his landlord (who is also his mother), inside of his apartment. The landlord is drunk and aggressively harrassing the tenant who was telling the landlord to leave. Landlord refuses to leave, and physically attacks tenant ,causes huge scene. Once the landlord his practically... View More
You need to immediately talk with a local landlord tenant attorney. You likely have damage claims against the landlord and perhaps criminal as well. Anytime you tell a landlord to leave the inside of your home (or anyone else for that matter) and they do not, call the police!
We have lived together for the last 3 years. We have 2 children together. I am the sole homeowner and work full-time. She works part-time and refuses to leave because she can't afford to live on her own. She is extremely abusive to myself and our children. I have insisted that she needs to... View More
It depends upon whether she can legally be classified as a tenant. If so, you go through the hoops to terminate her tenancy and evict if necessary. If not a tenant (likely given your brief description), then you have to file to eject her from the house. Eviction and ejection share similar goals -...View More
That would be up to the District Attorney - you know, the fellow that subpoenaed you to start with and who is relying upon your testimony? Subpoena's are not optional; subpoena's are not an invitation. They are a court Order for you to appear and testify. If you thumb your nose at the...View More
She emotionally blackmailed me into not submitting any evidence at the trial, so she was found innocent. Now she is using the restraining order and the threat of arrest as blackmail to take full custody of our children despite me offering several reasonable alternatives involving joint custody. Can...

It is not clear exactly where things currently stand. It sounds as if she assaulted you, was charged, went to a trial in which you failed to testify to the facts and she was found not guilty. She also obtained a restraining order against you prohibiting you from having contact with her or your...View More
My ex, a licensed PI, hit me multiple times with my 3 children present in a hotel room in Idaho last month, he ran so no arrest. The DA is pressing charges. I got an RO here in Oregon, he was finally served after he called 911 because he was withdrawing from fentanyl.
the police said its a civil matter if i want my 5th wheel, dirt bike and some other personal things back. I have a restraining order against him so i cant just go get my stuff. i went to prison for 3 years we were together 5years before that. i did sign the tittle over before i went in, in case...

You raise at least two different potential issues - how to arrange to pick up your property and how to resolve disputes over who owns specific property. The later issue, if you can't informally resolve it, will likely require the assistance of a local attorney (who can also help with...View More
He talked to his lawyer and she said “let me see what I can do” he called her several times then a week later tells him there’s nothing he can do. I filed to have the restraining dismissed and the judge denied it. Advised he request a hearing & I not show up and the judge will probably... View More
Something seems unusual here. You certainly could have filed for a FAPA domestic abuse restraining on a civil basis and had you done so, it is likely (but not guaranteed) that a Judge would have dismissed it upon your request. IF, however, your husband was arrested and charged with some form of...View More
Since we got married on 2018, he is different when it comes to money. Not only that, but also with respect to me. We have a joint account and he gets all my salary. All of his salary only goes to his debt (which is still not fully paid till now). And now he got laid from his work since April 27 and... View More
Your question isn't clear from the facts you presented. There is no way you can force your husband to contribute in a more meaningful way to the household. You could seek a divorce, and a lawyer can help you do that.
IF a Judge signed and a court issued a restraining order, it is valid and in effect until the court terminates it. You can try opposing it in court and asking to have it dismissed on any valid legal ground but unless and until a court actually DOES dismiss it, it is in effect and you risk being...View More
