My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Washington, Texas
I would like to some possible legal advice on if I have some sort of case for what happened to me last summer in my house. My aunt (who is originally from India) arrived here not too long ago (it has been about 2 years). Her husband works in the IT sector in the Middle East.
Anyway, she and her sons came to pay us a visit. Upon talking to my first cousins it appeared something fishy was happening behind the scenes but I could not put my finger down as to what has happening.
Needless to say, I later found out that my aunt brainwashed my sister (who was 16 at that time) in getting an arranged marriage with my 1st cousin. My sister being a minor went along with it and said that she actually wanted to marry my cousin (from India).
After clearing everything up. I was left feeling severe emotional abuse / distress from all of this and betrayed. I'm afraid they might try to brainwash her again when it's 18th birthday.
My aunt said that my sister wanted this to happen (as they brainwashed her) also she had the courage to tell me that my mother asked her to get my sister married to her son (which is a lie)
My mother (who is also from India but has lived here and given us from here) also encouraged my sister to even get an engagement with my cousin. She has also been brainwashed by my Aunt.
We as a family were rocked and could not believe it. My mother still talks to her sister and brother even tough we remind her that they are criminals.
Is there anything I can do as an older brother to protect the welfare of my family ? anything that I can note down ? I feel that something bad might happen again in the near future.
your guidance and assistance will be highly appreciated. My mother's sister lives in the state of Texas.
