Re: restraining order
If you do not appear to fight the order, the court may extend the order, sometimes for as much as a year. You should appear and present your side of the events.
I would not file a restraining order of your own unless you have a very good reason to.
If you like, we can work out a charge for me to meet with you and attend the hearing on your behalf. Please call me to set up an appointment if you would like to do this.
