Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I'm in need of a fast protection order yet tomorrow is a holiday. I need to contact a lawyer now. How can I get that in place while it's a holiday?
JA: Is there ongoing abuse or harassment? How recent?
Customer: Yes. It's against our kids from a non related person whom is threatening kids safety to get back at us. It's not good. She has many things I can charge for but I just need us all safe and grounds to prosecute if she does not stay away stop th Sorry voice texting with baby on knee
JA: Were the police called? What happened?
Customer: Ongoing. Few days ago was the last attempt to hurt us , but won't stop contacting
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Sadly it's complicated and some not nice police made it worse. I need to address the fact the father is in custody for breaching his bail conditions for 27 hour curfew at our home and his bail is drug charges. I have got evidence of police victimisation, and lots of other things that have gone on in this year though some are from the systems and some are from general public he has been offered an olive branch to resolve all this though we need to make sure in that I love brunch we are relocated safely as a whole family focus not condemning the most vulnerable

You may be able to find a lawyer out of Wellington who could help-Portia Law in Christchurch will be open and they accept legal aid. The papers are filed online so location may may not be critical-would that be useful?

Hello Chris. I need to see a lawyer today and get protection and restraining orders in place to cover children safety of 3 small children against someone not related to them. The person whom should file for them in in custody, and I'm not sure what to do with that. It's followed up with defamation of character, harressment, threatening to harm, willful damage, mental distress, and more. It needs to be today as the person is extremely dangerous from mental issues unaddressed.
