Protection From Abuse

"In the area of domestic violence, Maine's statistics show that 56 percent to 58 percent of the state's domestic assaults are men on women, about 20 percent are women on men, about 8 percent are parents on children and about 4 percent children on parents, according to the state's Crime in Maine analysis."

"If your in an abusive relationship, there is always help for you to get away from the situation. Not just with a PFA, but also help with gaining custody of your children, securing housing, child care, and getting you an Attorney. This will all cost you nothing. Once you file the PFA with the court, you'll be given the number to Caring Unlimited. They will help you with most of what I have mentioned. Domestic Abuse is no joke. You are never alone. If you need to be housed as well as hidden away from your abuser, they can help with that as well. The whole idea is to keep your abuser away from you and your children if necessary, and keep everyone safe."

My Final Thought...

"I would ask you to please remember, my knowledge is from helping others and doing the work involved to help them with their cases. I am NOT a Lawyer. I really enjoy exploring all the angles of any legal situation one finds themselves in. I also enjoy helping those that have been wronged or just have given up. When I help others it fuels my desire to learn more. I hope this website helps you to understand how and where to seek help. How to involve yourself with your Attorney and help them with your case. Hopefully you will learn a thing or two that helps you in your own struggles. To me, some of the laws seems simple. Almost common sense. I always start at the end and work my way back. What is the worst thing that could happen to you? Spending time in jail? Paying a fine? Having to report to a Probation Officer? Go to the end. That is where you start. Once you know what the end result might be, It makes it a bit easier to focus on what needs to be done and what you can live with as far as a plea agreement"
