    Default I need Legal Help...

    I was assaulted on Friday night, I pressed charges and I'm having a hard time understand a lot of the stuff going on with this case. Does anyone in here know anything about assault, and/or protection orders?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Sorry to hear that!! There should be a victims liason at the court to help you. Go to your county or city courthouse and ask around. I think it's called victims services in my area. They won't be lawyers, rather social workers assigned to help you through the process.

    Thanks Nashville! Im gonna check that site out.

    warhols, yes, its like a restraining order.... I think I kinda understand that now. I just have to wait until she is actually served with it apparently, until it actually goes into effect. Grrrr....

    I've never been in a fight before, and I ended up with this chick hitting me, 6 stitches, and she almost broke my nose. Im so frustrated and no one seems to know who I should talk to. I've called a ton of different people at the court house, and Im more confused now than I was before. blah.

    My mother had a restraining order against an ex-boyfriend of hers, she went straight to the police department. I hope that helps, I hope you're doing okay, hun.

    Did you call the cops to get her arrested?? Were there any witnesses to back up your claims? Since she physically tocuhed you. It would be considered assault and battery...not just assault. Did she use any weapons?

    I actually know alot about these types of things. I would need to knnow about the full details. If you want, you can send me a private message and I can see if I can help in any ways.



    Ps-This really sucks, Im sorry you had to go through this. I hope you feel better.

    I actually didn't get in touch with anyone, But I have figured a lot of things out just by doing some research online. I've finally almost got over being scared, and now Im just going to try to live my life without having to deal with her, and all the drama. Hopefully it works out. If not, Ill just deal with it when the time comes.

    Idk why this got to me so much but I can't change my life because of it. :)

    Thanks everyone!!!!

    I'm sorry this happened to you. I know of an organization called RAINN (linked to musician Tori Amos)- maybe they can help you? RAINN | Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network | RAINN: The nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization.One of “America’s 100 Best Charities" —Worth magazine
