Our client, facing abuse from her husband, came to us scared for her children and ready to seek an Order of Protection--which we were able to help her obtain by accompanying her to the courthouse. Her husband unexpectedly showed up at the children’s school after he was served and took them to his house, denying our client access to her minor children. However, we were able to secure a parenting schedule and later a full evidentiary hearing on the Order of Protection through the court. This resulted in the court awarding our client a full plenary Order of Protection that will last two years. We currently represent her in divorce proceedings and have been able to provide her with rental assistance through our outreach efforts.
