If a protective order was filed and then dismissed or dropped

This answer was rated:

If a protective order was filed and then dismissed or dropped and no charges ever made can that be used in court to prove that man is a dangerous person?
Not the fact that it was filed or dropped but the circumstances behind it could be used.

I dont understand. Are you saying that What she claimed happened as to the abuse could be used? In the issue she first attacked him while he was holding their baby in the yard and because the whole neighborhood saw he was granted custody and a protective order against her. When she agreed to stop drinking he withdrew his divorce pettition. two other times she got drunk and attacked him after the reconciliation and she claimed he beat her up. she called the police and it was noted she was unharmed. she filed one petition and did not follow through. the other petition she withdrew. The only one ever granted a protective order was him. he was never arrested or charged with anything but are you saying her claims count against him as to his character?

Kind of. She can come in and testify about what she claims happened. I'm not saying she would be believed but it certainly could be introduced into evidence.

Please don't hit the relist button. It sometimes takes a little while to get back to you because we are helping others, offline doing research, etc. I will get back to you as soon as possible but when you hit relist it removes it from the queue and you might not get an answer at all because no one knows you need help.

She will not come to testify. What I want to know is can my exhusband use the public record of her claims since he can print it out and bring a copy with him. Is a copy of the report heresay or admissable?
It's hearsay and not admissible. Even if he got a certified copy from the court it wouldn't be relevant and would not be admissible in a case in which you are the party. They would have to bring her live.
