What do I do if I have a protective order against me and I was forced to vacate home? 5 Answers as of January 30, 2014

My husband filed a fraudulent protective order against me. I was thrown out of my own home on Friday. He claims crazy things. I am scheduled for court on January 2nd and don't know what to do. I have no car, no money, only the clothes on my back, and I didn't do anything. All my things are at the house. I want to divorce him ASAP but have no money to file or get an Attorney. Please help.

Since this question was just submitted today January 28, 2014 to this site, I believe you must have your answer by now since you would have already been to court about 3 and 1/2 weeks ago.

First you can request a civil standby to get some of your basic belongings. You do that by calling your local police department, explaining the situation and requesting a standby while you pack a bag. They will usually give you about 20 minutes. As for filing for divorce, you can consult an attorney/retain an attorney or go through the self-service center (Maricopa County Superior Court) for help.
