My wifes ex husband flied a restraining order against her

This answer was rated:

My wife's ex husband flied a restraining order against her citing child abuse and neglect. He has made bogus claims of things "he says" her children told him went on during their last visit with her. Everything he has said is a lie, but he is a pastor in the heart of the bible belt. Court is during the school week so more than likely the children will not be available to be in court to provide their statement. What can we do to prove these accusations are false before we go to court and she loses her kids?

Hello and thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for you to ask any additional questions you may have if you feel the question has not been answered. Also, IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger, I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.


I'm sorry it doesn't work that way. That is the purpose of court, which is to prove the allegations are true or false. You cannot do anything before court once a person files a suit in court, court is where it will be settled unless the parties attend mediation and agree to a settlement of the issues. If witnesses are not able to attend the hearing, you can request a continuance to produce the witnesses you need. If you want to have kids testify you need to seek permission of the court before bringing kids to court. I hope this helps clarify.
