Tina’s husband sexually assaulted her when she was recovering from an injury, so she and her children fled to safety and Tina got a restraining order. She sought help from legal aid when her husband got an attorney and requested a hearing. Tina’s legal aid lawyer assisted her through the legal processes of determining parenting time and resolving ongoing issues with the restraining order. She also helped answer Tina’s questions about the criminal process, and ultimately, helped her with filing paperwork for divorce. Tina’s husband is now serving time for the sexual assault. Tina works from home while her children are in day care, and she receives ongoing services to help her heal from her trauma.
