  4. Never use credit accounts that are in your spouses name alone.Issues such as finances and who pays for what can be protected by petitioning the court for temporary orders. If you have joint credit accounts and are concerned about your spouse running up debt, you will have to get special protection from the courts.

Law Enforcment officials more willing to respond to domestic violence calls if there is a restraining order in place.
