What is the name of your state? Kentucky

I do not even know if this is possible, but I'm a little concerned about what is transpiring. Please forgive me if this seems far fetched.

Long story short, I have 4 children (2 still underage) with my ex. There were issues in our marriage;, physical, psychological, emotional, etc. primarily due to PTSD and TBI suffered in a vehicle accident in the military. Ex re-married, his wife left him over a year ago due to similar issues but from the sounds of it worse to the point of he has been stalking her, showing up at her work, threats, etc. Finally after much prompting from her family she filed for a restraining order and it was granted and he is being served today with it. I'm not sure if it was emergency or if it covers the kids, but she did say that the judge that issued it was the same judge that is overseeing her divorce case.

He has not made threats against me in 2 years, last time he threatened me was when I went to child support enforcement to enforce the order put in place 10 years ago. I'm worried about his reaction to the restraining order from his current wife. Can I do anything to protect myself and children?

If he hasn't made a threat in 2 years there really is nothing you can do at this point in time other than keep your doors locked and do not engage with him at all. How old are your 2 children who are still minors?

On the other hand, we don't actually know if he needs to calm down. There's no indication of how the RO has affected him.

Why were the children given a choice NOT to see their father?
Because he was abusive to them. The day before their father filed for divorce he tried to hit the oldest son's head against the wall.

He's now going for primary custody of his children with her. She is asking me to testify against him.

That certainly will make him mad. However, it might be the right thing to do anyway.
