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.

Financial Support for Victims:

If you have been a victim of family violence, you may be able to receive a waiver of the deposit to help you establish electric and/or telephone service. In order to qualify, you must be able to establish that you have been a victim of family violence and have a letter filled out by one of the following: family violence center staff, treating medical personnel, law enforcement personnel, Office of the Attorney General, the local County or District Attorney's office, or your local legal aid office. Once the letter has been filled out, you must send the letter to the electric and/or telephone company you are applying for service with. See the application form from the Texas Council on Family Violence.
