Snellville, GA asked in Criminal Law, Employment Law, Family Law and Domestic Violence for Georgia

Q: If my dad put a emrgy TPO on me may 3 I went to court yesterday he filed a continuance I askd for a lawyer after he ask

After he asked judge for continuance he asked if the judge could order us to go to counseling? Why would he do all this if he wanted to go to counseling? I've been through and completed counseling/therapy several times and it is not just me that is the problem no matter how many times they want to dump the blame on me? This is serious crap and my parents are getting older and I don't think they understand the severity of what could happen for what they've done? If I asked for a lawyer because it wouldn't make a difference if I said yes to therapy because I'd still have TPO issued and wouldn't be allowed to coach my girls at the gym? I've worked for my parents for 31 yrs I'm 46 now never married and NO kids! I am a gymnastics coach at my parents business and my parents and kids don't know what's going on and haven't been told anything from my parents so I'm having to dodge calls and texts from families ( kids I coach and their parents ) I love and that love me and know I'm not like this
