Lawyer's, Assistant
I am the "complainant" In a court case for non violent breaches of a protection order, however the police have added breaches that are not true and correct as additional. I have spoken to the Detective in charge and the crown prosecutor, however they are not listening to me. With the additional charges it looks very severe to the judge, as she can only see what's I'm front of her. I have written two letters with my safety plans/support and thoughts however I feel that as they keep saying I am the complainant in this matter, the additional charges should not be fictional and should I be getting a lawyer so that my voice and concerns are actually heard by the court. He has been imprisoned for 5weeks on remand, then was out on 24 hour bail for a week, until the police appealed that due to his place of residence being in the same city as me... so went back into remand? This is honestly so much more stressful and traumatic than the reasons I had a protection order in the first place
JA: Is there ongoing abuse or harassment? How recent?
Customer: No. Last one was in June. He was under the influence of methamphetamine and then engaged with an aod counselor to get help but then went back into prison. I have worked with people that have addiction s for the last 5years, so put forward my view that he has bail conditions to continue to engage with services so he does not relapse, as it was the primary concern for me
JA: Were the police called? Was there an arrest for violating the protective order?
Customer: Yes
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I guess I just feel that we were together for 14 and a half years, and he needs help and support and it's better if he has that in the community. They have put in place a non association order which I asked to be withdrawn but they said no... so I'm starting to feel like I'm doing something wrongCustomer: Chat is completed
