I am a CA attorney so I can not represent you in MD. You should schedule a free consultation with local MD family law attorneys and listen to their advice. Where it says practice area: put FAMILY LAW. This is not a criminal domestic violence issue but rather a family law issue(s). Pose this question again and you will receive many more responses. Good Luck. Hope this helps?
It is unclear whether you have a 2nd decree assault or a straight domestic violence petition pending. You need to hire an attorney who can act as a go between with your husband or his attorney. The Court can grant family maintenance in a DV case. There are too many issues and factors that you need to discuss with a family law attorney.
The answer to this question is general in nature and does not create an attorney client relationship.
