  • What can I do if the other party is not allowing me my visitation rights that was court ordered?

    Charles’s Answer

    The only thing you should do is going to the family law courthouse and filing a motion to modify the current custody order. Those orders are binding by the court so not following them is a violation of court orders. Judges typically do not like to have their orders violated so it may be a good opportunity to modify the order. The last thing you want to do is try to enforce the order yourself -- any actions which may result in harassment or a restraining order are only going to negatively affect your chances of receiving a better visitation schedule. Most family law court houses have legal aide to help you if you cannot afford an attorney.

  • Is it possible for someone to have a restraining order or even be arrested for assault if no marks are visible?

    Charles’s Answer

    Yes -- restraining orders are not only used for physical violence but also for threats of stalking or assault. The burden to obtain a restraining order is very low and judges are inclined to issue them -- especially to protect children. You should contact a family law attorney or go to your local family or civil court.

    You most certainly want an attorney to ensure your assets are protected and any custody or alimony issues are properly taken care of. AVVO is a great resource -- look for an attorney in your region who will best be able to help your case. Good luck!
