My sister is getting a divorce from her husband. She left with the kids because he was being abusive. She got a restraining order on him and filed phone harassment charges against him. She also went to court and the gave her a protection order for 180 days. That night he broke into the house where she was staying, beat her and pulled a knife on her and told her he was going to kill her and their kids. She got him to leave and called the police. He was not arrested until 2 days later after we called a billion times. Her lawyer was given to her by the womans shelter and a rock could represent her 1000 times better than he is. We live in West Virginia. Any ideas on laws to help her…??? We fear for her and the kids.
