I just went to take the dogs out and there is a car that looks like his sitting down the street. I don't know if its his car, but I took a picture of it.

Im going to get a RO this week. I have a friend who is a lawyer and has a lawyer friend in my area show handles PO for a living, so I am probaby going to do the ER TRO myself, and then when I it comes time for the hearing and he is there (or has a right to be there), I will have her do it so I don't have to actually speak to him.

A protective order is much hard to get than a restraining order though. You have to show (1) you are in immediate danger and (2) a past history of documented violence.

Ok, so here is a status.

I spoke with a friend of mine who is a lawyer who works in the area of family law and deals with this type of situation on a daily basis.

Empty threats! I had them too.

I hope that works! Nice to have a lawyer friend indeed!
