If you are talking about the Temporary RO only be recently issued, then you timely and properly file your Opposition pleadings and evidence before the scheduled court hearing, and argue your case at the hearing.

If you already let the Permanent RO be issued without contesting it at the hearing, you are too late to 'do anything' except file a Motion to try to set aside the default, ruling and orders, and seek to have a new hearing on it. No guarantee of success in that.

If serious about hiring counsel to try to oppose and fight this, feel free to contact me to discuss your defenses, evidence and the costs of doing this.

If all of the event alleged in the declaration supporting the restraining order occurred in 2011 and the restraining order was recently ordered, you might talk to an appellate attorney about an appeal. Restraining orders must be timely and events of two years ago are not timely. If you are going to talk to an appellate attorney you must do so immediately. There are strict limitations regarding the date to file an appeal.
