Q: Can a restraining order me filed against me when I texted my ex after 2-3 years of non contact?
I sent a text to my ex from my new number apologizing for my past I said I hope she is doing well then received a text back saying if I keep contacting her I will get a restraining order but I haven’t tried contacting her in the past 2-3 years
A: She can always seek a RO. Anyone can. Whether it will be granted is another story. It depends entirely on your history and that of your relationship with your ex. If I were you, I would stop any further contact. If you absolutely have to say something, say that you will respect her wishes and not contact her again. And then don't. Preferably, just don't. Whatever happened before, it is toxic now, and the best thing you can do is give it space to breathe.
MORE INFO NEEDED.
WAS R.O. FOR A SET PERIOD OF TIME?
INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT R.O. STILL BEING IN EXISTENCE, JUST DON'T CONTACT EX AGAIN AND NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE.
CLEARLY EX DID NOT WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU.
WHY RISK EX GOING TO COURT ON THE MATTER.
