My ex got arrested after he tried to stop police from turning over custody of my children to me due to my protection order. how

Asked over 1 year ago - Tampa, FL

long will he stay there for one charge contempt and second charge police obstruction non-violent? i'm afraid of him, and what he will do. His lawyer from the divorce case already phoned me threatening, me and telling me that i should contact her to fix things. she accused me of perjury and obstruction of justice, and other stuff which she didn't detail. i never lied though, but i'm afraid of what she will do, if i don't do what she tells me. i'm living in fear of what lengths she will go to, because she's from my ex's country and will do dirty tricks, whc includes blantant lies. what can i do? i'm thinking of running, before the actual protection order hearing? i feel very threatened by her. would she be considered a third party, since my protection order is supposed to protect me from all

    Answered . It is a bit surprising the lawyer called you, but if you are not represented by a lawyer it is permissible. If you want to protect yourself from him and her, you should hire an attorney. Then, his lawyer will no longer be allowed to call you.
