Bethanne, a single mother of four, needed help to be safe from her ex-husband. During her marriage, Bethanne experienced emotional and physical abuse. After the divorce was finalized, her ex-husband escalated his threatening behavior. When Bethanne found a picture of herself and her children torn up in her driveway and then heard that her ex-husband had told friends that he, “wanted to get a gun and kill his ex-wife,” she turned to legal aid for help. Legal aid assisted Bethanne to get a stalking protective order to help her and the kids stay safe. Bethanne told us, “I couldn’t have gotten the stalking protective order alone. There are too many laws that I didn’t know. My legal aid attorney allowed me to have a voice.”
