A: Restraining Orders are not to be taken lightly - they can affect the rest of your life by interfering with potential jobs; resulting in denials of security clearances; prohibit firearm ownership; even affect your ability to rent a residence and a variety of other potential issues. Yes, you should review all the details privately with an attorney - DO NOT post details on the web, they can be used against you in court. It is not listed where you are in Oregon but ask around or Google for attorneys in your area that can help - usually they are consumer law or family law attorneys. Good luck.
