Yes he has hit her. On multiple occasions. I will let her know about the domestic petition.
She needs to get to the clerk and file a petition for protection, tell her not to elaborate much, just put down the basic facts of the physical abuse. Nothing more.
And just so I can relay this information more accurately, because I will be asked, this is considered a protective injunction correct? And when he would be served with the notice would he then have to leave? Or would that be decided after the return hearing?
It is called a petition for protection against domestic violence. He should be required to leave if she writes the right information in the petition. He hit me with his left fist to my right eye on the __ day of ____, 2012
Ok thank you very much for your help Mr De Groot.
When someone goes on and on and on in one of those petitions it just gives an attorney a lot of material to work with in showing how incredible the person is. But the whole thing is geared at protecting people from domestic violence. He probably will not be allowed to return.
