Q: I have a full stay away order of protection against my mother-in-law protecting myself and my three young children. It will expire in eight months and I do not trust her to be near my children. I greatly fear for their safety and I know that she will bad mouth me to my children. My son was injured in her care on more than one occasion and she physically assaulted me and was extremely vulgar and verbally abusive on more than one occasion all in front of my son. My husband has lied to protect his mother over the sake of telling the truth to protect me and our children. Is there Anything that I could do after the order expires?
A: If you’re not divorced yet from your Husband & he disagrees with the notion of the mother-in-law’s access to the children, then you’ll need to decide for yourself whether that’s a deal-breaker. If it is, file for divorce & file a motion to restrict the access. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment.
