Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I am sorry to hear of this situation for your health and your family.
What is the status of this now? Where are your children? Do they have contact with your inlaws?
Thank you for that information.
The answer to your question "Can I get a restraining order..." is NO, not at this time. The incident happened 2 or so years ago and there has been no contact or harassment currently.
They would need to be harassing you and causing you fear for your safety to get a restraining order
If you have further questions, you may post them here and i will continue to assist. Otherwise, even if you have a subscription with JA please remember to ACCEPT my answer as that is the only way I can get credit for my time and information in this matter. Thank you and good luck
Absolutely. IF they have contact and you feel they are a danger to his health and wellbeing, you can file on his behalf until he is 18
That's fine. You need to hit Accept or I dont get credit for my time and information.
