Dear jmcclary:

Greetings. Yes, an attorney can fill out all the paperwork and file it, but you will still need to miss work to go down and talk to the judge, as well as for the 10 day return hearing. There is no way to get a restraining order for yourself without missing work.

On the other hand, if your daughter is also a victim of his abuse and he has put her in fear of imminent serious bodily harm, then she can file for the domestic violence restraining order and she can go to court. Best of luck.

Is there a way I can get a legal separation without him agreeing because of domestic violence.

Dear jmcclary:

Greetings. Yes, if you move out, then you are legally separated. You have three/four choices for a separation. First, you move out. Second, he moves out. Third, you file for domestic violence. Fourth, you file a claim for divorce from bed and board. Good luck.

I am a victim of domestic violence verbal and physical. My husband and I had the police come to the house several times, recently we both got locked up. I have been married 3 years, victim 3 years. All property is in my name including the house. I recently started a new job and cannot miss any time. I am now concern for my daughter (20 years old) and my safety especially my daughter. He hates her! Is there a way an attorney can do all the leg work for me without me missing any time from work - getting him out of the house etc. Things are getting worse where I fear our lives
