Good afternoon Walter, Thank you for the additional clarification. There is absolutely nothing there to justify a court issuing an order of protection against anyone. What the person seeking the protective order is doing is essentially seeking an injunction against free speech for speech that they don't care for. The court is not allowed to enjoin free speech except in dire circumstances---and this example of speech is perfectly fine---it is basic communication and not harassment in the least. If a judge was crazy enough to issue a temporary protective order over this, then it needs to be challenged in court. There is no basis for an order of protection. If you have additional questions, you may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link. Please also keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
will I thought the same thing and I am not holoding back but the kicker is she said she was afraid of what I might do and I have not put eyes on her in 18 months and have not spoken to her in about a year and only e- mailed her twice. Is it correct to think that this misdeamnor civil charge has a 1 yr statue of limination.....because some of the struff I talk about happened more than a yr from the signing of the ex parte order.
what I reall think is the former husband is back in town and pushing her to get the order because I want to talk with him because believe it or not he sent her out to find a man and tell him about it.
yes I get the prize of the day for some crazy shit
What state are you talking about.What crime would be the misdemeanor?
stalking based on the above fact pattern
read the code 39-17-315
it confusing....seems like chain of events have to occur first harassment which than leads to misdeamnor stalking
can I motion the court to raise the standard of proof from preponderance to clear and convincing?
