Q: If someone tried to file a restraining order against me and it was denied, does it go on my record?
I had many issues with my neighbor in the past and have multiple emails with my apartment complex stating that. I called the police multiple times for noise complaints and they never did anything, recently she kicked my door multiple times and had a guy friend with her, i felt threatened so when I opened the door she was yelling at me and i threw a broom her way. She called the police and they took a statement. She tried to file a restraining order against me but it was denied by the judge due to me not being an immediate danger. I have never met her before that day, and i have emails stating that I don’t know her in real life. There is a hearing soon since she appealed and i was wondering if that would go on my record if it was dismissed?
NO. IT WOULD NOT GO ON YOUR RECORD. THIS GOES FOR A RESTRAINING ORDER OR CIVIL PROTECTION ORDER. IT MUST BE GRANTED IN ORDER TO GO ON YOUR RECORD.
