She can get a restraining order very easily if she lies.. but it will only be temporary. Then there is a hearing and she will need to explain to a judge why and what proof etc. At that point if she has no reason to fear you etc the judge will cancel the TRO and it will be over. Originally posted by ahb1108 So, I guess that she can have one of these put on me by saying anything and not having to prove it?
How long would a TRO stay on my record, and would I have any chance to voice my side of the story before it was issued? I'd like to clear the air and avoid the whole thing. Again I had no intentions of ever talking with her again anyway. I think she just did all of this to cover up her affair. That may just backfire on her if it goes to a hearing.
Thanks for the input Icelk.
