Is this the same case that I've seen from this zip code for the third time? Filing a false protective order will not get you anywhere, unless there are significant criminal allegations, and then she's likely to end up in DHS custody. There's a valid custody order in place and if daughter doesn't like it it is up to you to get the conditions and terms of custody changed.
