I am scared of how my spouse will react when I file for divorce. What can I do?
Nervous in Newton
If you are in “fear of imminent bodily harm” you can request a restraining order to keep your spouse away from you and keep you safe. If you do not meet the necessary standard for a restraining order, then seek a remedy from the court, such as an order to have your spouse vacant the marital home.
