I just had to get a restraining order against my ex husband. It was the only way the police here on Caye Caulker would help me. They referred to it as "the magic paper" we need to help you. I went to the police station in San Pedro and saw the Clerk of Court, which was upstairs (stairs entrance at the back of the station), and told her what was going on. Family matters are addressed on Fridays with the Magistrate. It was a Tuesday, so they sent my ex a summons for Friday. I hired an attorney, even though I was the plaintiff, these kinds of things can get turned upside down on you very quickly.
