When we found out i was pregnant a couple years ago,he physically attacked me to try & kill our baby. After he went through court ordered anger management & he stayed away from us for a year,i gave him another chance. He started being abusive again & i got our son & i out of the situation. Now hes constantly messaging/calling me.
Don't give him another chance and ask for a restraining order right away. Preferably you should hire an attorney but if you can't afford one, many shelters offer assistance. Best wishes to you.
You described a very serious and dangerous situation. Now you gave him "another chance" - to be do what? You know what you need to do. If you do not, you are placing your son and yourself in serious jeopardy. You should contact an attorney to file a restraining order against him. His actions will only begin to increase in tempo. If you cannot hire an attorney there are a lot of self help centers that will be able to assist you in obtaining a restraining order. Protect yourself and your son.
Yes. I would be surprised if the DV you mentioned failed to issue a restraining order. The DV order should be ongoing; DV orders generally last for 3 years.
