Amy Ingargiola started this petition to Senator Pat Toomey and

     The current law in the state of Pennsylvania requires an abused spouse/victim who earns more money than the abuser to pay spousal support causing the victim to be revictimized and re-abused. My friend Regina Yamrick after being verbally, mentally, emotionally and physically abused in her 9 year relationship and marriage is required by domestic relations to pay her abusive spouse spousal support in the amount of $575 per month. As of May 19, 2020 she has a PFA with two violations to date and she has been on a medical leave of absence because of severe anxiety and depression secondary to the severe marital stress and spousal abuse. As the current state law in Pennsylvania reads, this law is allowing her abusive spouse to abuse her not only verbally, mentally, emotionally and physically it now allows him to further abuse her financially!  I want to change this law! I want to stand up for my friend and every other abused spouse in PA. Please sign this petition to stop domestic violence victims to continue be abused! #ChangethelawPA
