knowing that we’re going into court
00:34
and we can seek a temporary order

act whether it’s to file a divorce if

you’re in a marriage that you’re

experiencing domestic violence and

at the same time we file for a divorce
01:00
and we can go
01:00
in get all those papers served on the
01:03
abuser
