Do not tell the judge that you have lied about him putting his hands on you because you can be found in contempt of court. What you should do at the hearing is tell the judge that you have had a change of heart and your ex has not bothered you since the temporary injunction and you would like for the judge not to issue a permanent injunction. You would like to give your ex another chance.
