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.

Montana Unemployment Law Protects Victims of Domestic Violence.

Montana Statutes Title 39, Chapter 51, Section 2111 allows that an individual may not be denied unemployment benefits if leaving work or being discharged due to circumstances from yourself or your child being the victim of domestic violence. Evidence of domestic violence is required (police report, injunction, etc.). Benefits may extend for up to 10 weeks in a 12 month period. For more info contact the Montana Unemployment Insurance Division.
