I am sorry again to hear about this situation. I know it is probably gut wrenching to watch your own child go down a path and leave you helpless to stop it.
But my responses have not changed. Either she needs to be involuntarily committed to a mental institution (which you say you could not do) or you just need to let her come around on her own.
You can fight the restraining order, but none of this is relevant to a restraining order. You are wanting a court to see your daughter as your daughter who needs help from her parents to get on the right path. It just does not work that way. The function of the court is not to make adults do things they don't want to do (unless it is illegal), even if it is what is bet for them.
I am sorry, I just do not have a solution for you, because there is no legal solution, other than disputing the restraining order.
What you want is for your daughter to make the right decisions and be the kind of person you think she can be. The legal system is not the place to make that happen, unfortunately (unless you are going to try to have her committed).
I will accept, just wanted to say I understand. I am disappointed in the Mental Health that they did not even try to answer it. I know there must be research places at major universities, hospitals, etc. One of them, if directed to them, would find this not only an interesting study but maybe an area where research is lacking. As you say the legal system has only one solution. Let them get strung out on heroin or dead to help them. It's a shame, I know of so many artist that struggle who with treatment would live a happy life, the problem is that ones like my daughter will not come around in time, she as diagnosed will only get worse and worse. THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE, MOST ARE JUST LOST OR REBELLIOUS; MY DAGHTER is mentally Ill.
The good news is my lawyer will destroy her on the witness stand and for the first time in 4 years she will know her truth is false/ a lie; this will help;
then he will work, again on the witness stand and expose the cult family that has control of my daughter. if he succeeds in both, our daughter will seek treatment and accept our sacrifice to send her back to a world class college of art and design; my lawyer D M deV is that good, actually he could do this while reading "War and Peace"; So I pray for this, and my daughter back;
thanks for the gun question answer......
Can I ask you one quick question?: MY restraining order is ending December 2 but my criminal trial DV will not be over. So, since I am not guilty, only charged of Domestic Violence ----- Do I get my guns back December 3rd? in Florida;
Good luck with her on the stand.
You will not get your guns back, most likely. It is a condition of your bail, so you will not get them back until the case is over.
