My Legal Options after Protective Order


#1

I am currtnely unemployed and my husband pays all the bills. In the spring I got a Protective Order against him. I dropped the Protective Order because I was advised thru mutual friends that he could lose his job if I kept persuing the Protective Order after the 10 days. Well now things are starting to get bad again and I wanted to know if there was any other way to seperate from him w/o getting a Protective Order and him losing his job? My second question is there anyway to find out if that is true, that he could lose his job if I had a Restraining Order against him.

Thanks!

You may leave him at any time and file an action for support.
There are some jobs that may terminate an employee for having a restraining order against them, but that is not a reason to forgo the protection.
