I agree with the previous response. The answer is no. However, the e-mail and the check or payment can be introduced as evidence that the payment was made upon her request and satisfies the amount you were required to pay her.
Most injury attorneys, like myself, offer free consultations for injured workers. You may have a discrimination claim as well; therefore, I highly recommend you contact an attorney for a consultation as soon as possible. Avvo is a great source for finding an attorney to represent you.
Seek a consultation with an attorney. You will want to respond to the order and be prepared to appear at the hearing.
Your wife will need to show that you committed an act of domestic violence by assaulting her, threatening to assault her, or committing an act that made her feel imminent harm. On the other hand, you have the very difficult job of showing there was no act of domestic violence or threat. The police report may be helpful if there is a claim of assault but no evidence.
You may seek contempt if your ex is violating an order of the court by not providing your portion of the income tax refund. If your ex is found in contempt, you will also be awarded the attorney fees for having to bring and argue the contempt motion. Furthermore, you should request through discovery (if not already provided) a copy of all the bank account information from marriage and separation. The funds in those accounts that he took are community as well.
Property purchased during marriage is community. However, if one party signs a quitclaim deed, that is evidence the property may have been intended as separate. The court has significant latitude when dividing property in a "fair and equitable" manner. There are other factors the court will consider like marital/equitable liens for improvements.
Social Security Disability and Settlements depend on whether they were for past lost income or compensation. Also, whether the money was comingled....
Your "question" is confusing. It is unlcear whether this is truly a no contact order or a domestic violence protection order. Regardless, violating either is very serious. I suggest you contact an attorney for a consultation.
You live in Centralia, therefore you can seek free legal advice from the Lewis County Bar Legal Aid in Chehalis if you cannot afford an attorney.
I agree with the previous response. Most workers compensation attorneys, like myself, work on a contingent basis and offer free consultations. It is beneficial to have an attorney review your case and help you resolve your issues, such as your PPD, time loss, mileage, and medical bills.
You can petition the court and request the prosecuting attorney remove the NCO in a criminal case. That does not mean the court or the prosecuting attorney will remove the NCO. The prosecuting attorney may not need you to testify to find the Defendant guilty of Assault 4- DV. However, prosecuting attorney's generally prefer the victim to testify and may subpoena you.
You may want to speak to the prosecuting attorney or the Defendant's attorney (whether appointed or retained.)
In my experience, the restrained person (Respondent) would get arrested regardless if the protected person (Petitioner) invited the Respondent to violate. It is the duty and responsibility of the Respondent to stay away. However, there are not enough facts and details.
I recommend you consult with an attorney to review the specific language of the order. And, if both parties agree, modify or dismiss the order.
