MY ABUSER HAS A GUN

If you have a current Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) from a court against your abuser, or if your abuser has been convicted of a felony or domestic violence misdemeanor, then Federal law states that it is illegal for your abuser to buy or have a gun in their possession.

You MUST ASK THE JUDGE to specifically write in your order that the abuser cannot buy or have a gun while the order is in effect and to require that your abuser to give any guns to the police, or require the police to go to the abuser's house and get them. The guns then go to either the county sheriff or court clerk of stolen property. The district attorney in the county where the gun(s) was taken away can then file to have them destroyed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the domestic violence agency in your area immediately.


Colorado Unemployment Insurance Laws for Victims of Domestic Violence.

Passed in 2000, Title 8, Article 73, subsection 108, provides that in certain circumstances, domestic violence victims are eligible for full award of benefits. Quitting a job because of domestic abuse may be reason for a full award if (A) you have a copy of a police report, criminal charges, protection order, medical records or other evidence documenting the abuse; (B) you provide written notice that you are receiving assistance or counseling from a recognized counseling entity for domestic abuse; and (C) you have not received benefits under this section within the prior three years. Call 303-318-8000 for more info.
