6 months ago.I was arrested for Domestic battery.
I wasn't given the opportunity to give my own statement.
This was my first offense. I have been mairried 8 year.
My wife has been unemployed for three years. No kids
to take care of .She just doesn't won't to work.
She ran into a lot of money( over 15k )
With out me knowing this she put the money in a secret bank account.
Not ever our bank. She had the money over a week with out me knowing.
She bought a car, kept it parked up the street so I would not see it.
I start seeing her spend money. I question her about this.
She got violent, hurts me. I call the police to have them talk to her.
Before the police get to the home, she drives the the police station
and said I beat her. The police report in very incorrect.
I was arrested for domestic battery. And I'm the one who called for help.
No contact order.( Bond ) Put out of my Home that I had a mortgage on before I
was married. And a emergency protective order. 3 days later I get handed divorce papers.
This is the first time in 8 years we have ever been apart.
20 Days later, emergency protective order is dismissed because of no evidence.
Judge tells me I can go home. So I go home . The wife show up 7 minute later
Told me to leave, she was calling the police becauce I was braking my bond.
( No contact order ) So I'm out again. 12 day later, Judge said I didn't brake my bond
and I could go home. So again I go home, 10 minute later the wife show up.
She said she was calling the police. So I handed her the phone and asked her if she
wanted me to dail the number for her ? Police show up, and told me to leave.
I showed the officer the paper work that I had. The officer told the wife there was
nothing he could do,And that I had all rights to be there. I had no change of clothes
so I got some clothes and left. Because she wasn't leaving. 3 days later I got a unlawful detainer
against her, went home, ( while she wasn't home ) changed the locks and been home ever since.
2 months later The state dropped the charges of Domestic battery because of no evidence.
In the divorce she wants everything in the house even the stuff on the walls.
$12,500.00 in cash for her intrust in the home that she doesn't own. ( mortgage in my name only )
$400.00 a mouth for five years alimony( no kids no car payment ) for me to pay her attorney fees
and court cost. I only bring home $1100.00 a month. In the state of West Virginia
you must file a financial statement. I counted over 12 mistakes on her report adding
up over $500 she said she needed to live on.There is alot more to the story but I will end it there.
Question # 1 Why wasn't I given the opportunity to give my own statement ?
Nether the police or the state took a statement.
Question # 2 If I had evidence on my body were she attact me. and the police saw it
why wasn't she arrested for Domestic battery ?
Question # 3 Where is my justice ??
My divorce lawyer is the same lawyer I used for the Domestic battery.
I used him becauce he knew what was going on already.
I tried to get a new lawyer but no one would take it because it was in midstream.
or conflict. Conflict is that thay already talked to the wife when she was looking for a lawyer.
Please can anyone help me ?
Thank You.. Steven.
