Leigh Anne came to the FAC seeking a protection order and assistance with criminal charges against her husband. We connected her with Pisgah Legal Services, accompanied her to interviews with law enforcement and multiple court dates, and were there with her when her protection order was granted.
Once the order expired, she attempted to co-parent with her estranged husband for about two years, until he was arrested again for abusing her. Her advocate assisted her with re-connecting with Pisgah Legal Services, obtaining a protection order, and taking out multiple protection order violations with the magistrate office. After the third report of violations, her advocate coordinated with Hendersonville Police Department on securing Leigh Anne's abusers' arrest.
Leigh Anne has remained very brave throughout these difficult times, and has displayed inspiring resilience, strength, and hope.
