  • How do I get my ex-boyfriend to stop harassing me and my friends?

    I broke up with my boyfriend about a month ago because he was extremely attached and began to act abusive (bruising my wrists when angry/choking me "for fun"/play slapping my friends). I broke up with him over email and stopped all contact with hi...

    Harassment and stalking (as well as physical violence) are all bases upon which you can seek and obtain a Civil Protection Order. In order to seek a Civil Protection Order, you can either hire an attorney to assist you or you can go by yourself down to your local county Court and fill out the forms. Call ahead to see if there are specific hours for your particular Court. Once you obtain your Temporary Civil Protection Order, you will have to have it served (the local sherriff's department can do this for you) and then you will have a Permanent Protection Order hearing in two weeks where the judge will decide whether to make the Temporary Protection Order permanent. If he violates the Temporary or Permanent Protection Order, call the police and he will be arrested and charged. In addition to seeking a Civil Protection Order, you could also call the police as he may be violating laws regarding harassment and/or stalking. If he is charged, the Court will very likely enter a Mandatory Criminal Protection Order. If he violates this order, he will also likely be charged for that violation. Take care, individuals who stalk and harass can often be very dangerous, so don't take these actions likely.

  • How can I kick my husband out of the house we live in?

    My husband and I have been married for 5 years and live in my mothers house. She is the only name on the house. I want a divorce and for him to leave but he said that I have no legal rights that can make him leave. We do not have a lease through m...

    Alexandra’s Answer

    Your mom, as the owner of the home, (and in the absence of a lease) likely has the ability to require him to leave. However, if you have children, always speak to an attorney when kicking out the other spouse to determine if there would be any implications to child custody issues (aka whether the Court would look poorly upon you for any actions you take). In response to your question, though, your mother does have the ability to make anyone leave her home if there is no lease. If necessary, she can likely obtain the assistance of the local police department in having him removed.

  • My ex filed for divorce in Aug last year, I was in a motorcycle accident after papers were filed. Is she entitled to any of the

    settlement? Divorce will be final Apr 9th. She never took care of me at all, and we were living seperate and in the middle of a divorce.

    Alexandra’s Answer

    It depends on the purpose of the settlement. For example, if it is for the replacement of past wages or pain and suffering, it could be viewed as marital. If it is comensation for future wages which will be lost, it would not likely be viewed as marital. The way the settlement agreement is drafted (and how the funds broken down in that agreement) is very important in terms of how much the Court will consider the settlement proceeds to be "marital" and therefore subject to division equitably. I highly advise that you have your personal injury attorney consult with a divorce attorney on exactly how to word the settlement agreement so that your interests are maximized in terms of what could be viewed as marital and what is not.
