Supplemental Petition

Overview In Project 1, students need to demonstrate that they can successfully locate and cite a specific statute, in Bluebook format; identify legally significant facts; and present legally significant facts in clear, concise, and correct English in a pleading in a domestic relations case. This Project is worth 100 points and it will be scaled to count for 20% of your final course grade. This Project requires you to conduct research on law related to domestic violence protective orders in Maryland and draft a portion of a supplemental petition for protection from domestic violence. The facts are drawn from Module 5, Topic 3. For this Project, you will “play” the role of the paralegal, Maya. Before you read the “Facts and Instructions” section of the assignment, please (re)read the interview contained in Module 5, Topic 3. Instructions Attachments should be in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format. Do not turn in your work in any other format, as these are the only file types that LEO reliably transmits. If you use a different file type (such at .wps or .html) and I’m unable to access your work, I will not be able to award you any points. If I can read an “unapproved” file type, I will grade your work, but deduct points for the error. Please also include page number, your name on the paper itself (in a header, ideally), and your name in the file name (e.g. “Smith_Project1.doc”). If you choose to paste your work in the Assignment text box, be sure that it maintains your formatting and doesn’t add stray .html tags. You will lose points for messy formatting (a common problem in the textbox). Part A is worth 40 points. Part B is worth 60 points. Finally, complete your work on your own, and complete it with integrity. Do not plagiarize or commit any acts of academic dishonesty. Facts After Julie, Maya’s supervising attorney, reviews Audrey’s Petition for Protection and her temporary protection order, Julie has some concerns about the adequacy of the petition that Audrey filed pro se (on her own without representation by an attorney) to start the case. Julie tells Maya that she’s concerned because the Petition for Protection that Audrey completed at the courthouse simply alleges that, Mike Johnson, her spouse “Threatened me and choked me with his hands.” It does not describe the entire incident or the prior history of abusive behavior. Consequently, Julie wants you (in the role of the paralegal, Maya) to retrieve some materials and white a first draft a Supplemental Petition for Protection to file on Audrey’s behalf. For purposes of this assignment, you also need this additional information: Audrey obtained the ex parte temporary protection order on November 7, 2016. This was two days after the most recent incident with Mike. The interview between Maya and Audrey occurred on November 8, 2016. The Johnson family’s home is located at 12345 New Hampshire Avenue, in Silver Spring, Maryland. Audrey received the powdery envelope at this home and the incident on the stairs happened there, as well. Part A 1. Locate and cite, in Bluebook format, the specific statute that defines “abuse” in protective order proceeding in the Family Law Article of the Maryland Code. You do not need to write your answer in a complete sentence; the correct, precise, complete citation in Bluebook format is enough. 2. Please list all of the incidents described in the interview between Maya and Audrey that you think qualify as “abuse” under the statute you located in Question 1. Your list should accurately describe facts from interview – do not assume or make up any facts. Your work needs to be intelligible and words need to be spelled correctly, but list items do not need to be written in complete sentences. Part B Draft a “Supplemental Petition for Protection From Abuse” on behalf of Audrey Johnson. In the Supplemental Petition, describe each incident that would qualify as abuse for purposes of a protection order under the law identified in Part A. Each incident must be described in a numbered paragraph, and you should try to identify as accurately as possible the date and location of each incident. For an example, see the model Supplemental Petition posted in the Week 3 conference.
