 Palmer emphasized Jackson's physical stature (6-foot-4, 210 pounds) and claimed that some of the abuse occurred in the presence of their son.

 Palmer requested a 100-yard no-contact restriction, no visitation rights for Jackson, and no child support. 

Palmer urged the court to mandate Jackson to complete a 52-week batterer intervention program to address his behavior.

 In a heartfelt declaration, Palmer stated that her son, Leo, is the most important thing to her, emphasizing the need for a safe environment free from violence for him.

Palmer explained that she finally ended her relationship with Jackson for her son's safety and wellbeing, emphasizing the importance of creating a violence-free environment for him to grow up in.
