A: It is unclear based on the facts whether you can have the person removed from the home. However, to get a protective order dismissed against you, you will have to gather evidence and present both tangible (if available) and testimonial evidence of what happened at the protective order hearing. I do suggest that you find an attorney in your area to discuss and resolve this matter. I do not suggest you try to handle it alone unless you have clear cut evidence that will exonerate you. Good luck!
