You can always file for a restraining order, but it would appear you would need a lot more to obtain one. I am not sure what you mean by he's "stealing her pictures through a fake profile." If you are indicating he is merely copying pictures of his child from your profile, that will probably not...Read more »
Hearings are open to the public unless it is a confidential case, such as an adoption, paternity, CFS, etc. For those type of cases they normally close the courtroom. Other than that you should be able to attend.
Just issued a RO against ex boyfriend who verbally, physically, and psychologically abused me, using my supposed cheating as reason why he treated me in abusive manner. Was granted temporary RO and now completing forms for permanent. While we were together, I'd placed a recording device in his... Read more »
Shouldn't have done that. At this point you just need to see if he brings it up and hope he doesn't. But if he does you need to get representation right away, and not discuss this matter with anyone else until you do, because the ramifications of this can be far reaching.
I pay vet bills/ buy food, etc. and on all documents at the vet l am listed as owner. Can he call police and force me to give him the dog? She is used as my ESA. I have a note from my doc stating she helps me with my anxiety. He claims l can go back if l get rid of my other dog and give him back... Read more »
The police likely won't get involved in what appears to be a civil dispute over ownership to property. If he wants the dog back, he could report it stolen. He can sue you in Small Claims for the value of the dog or its return, if he can prove ownership. The fact that you use the dog as your ESA...Read more »

Child support and visitation rights are separate issues even though you can file for them together in the same pleadings. If he is on the birth certificate than you would want to file a Petition for Custody and Support. At the same time you should file a Request for Orders which will set out to...Read more »
We told the attorney but during the trial he told the judge that we want 5 years and we thought once that is granted what we stated on the application for restraining order will be granted. It was after that the attorney reported that only 5 years was granted and nothing else by the judge. Could we... Read more »
Actually, the statutes that provide for restraining orders (civil harassment and domestic violence) provide a provision for the payment of attorneys fees. From your question it does not appear this is a contract action which the prior answer deals with.
I told the police what had happened we were arguing and when I was shoved something broke and my mom thought we were fighting. My boyfriend wanted the keys to leave the scene so we went outside as we were outside we continued to argue and that’s when I believe a neighbor got us arguing on tape n... Read more »

Fast forward....my son's possible biological parent then staged a DV and got... Read more »
I would guess there is much to this story that has not been told. You are right, you do have conflicting orders, and technically yours is last in time. However, since you knew of the biological father he should have been noticed of your action and it should have been disclosed to the court that...Read more »
