Good morning. What was the basis for which she sought it? Also, just to be clear, it was imposed? There was a hearing on it and the Judge ordered that you stay away from her?
I see. Can you clarify for me why you want something imposed against her? I am just trying to get a better idea of what she is doing at this time
Thank you for the additional information. She has no legal right to interfere with your time with the children. Moreover, there is no legally recognized relationship with her and your Ex ( i.e. marriage) or even engagement, so she should not be around when you are with them or get involved with anything. Moreover, the Judge could have and/or you can, to simply keep her away from the children when they are with you Ex and that she is not to spend the night or be with them, unless they are married. This way, there would be no reason for you to be in contact with each other, since there is no legal reason she needs to be present or in the same proximity as you, if you and your husband need to deal with something related to the children, such as the open house which you shared. You certainly do not want to expose yourself to a situation where she may call the police for no reason, which is why modifying the order to prevent her from being around the children and/or a situation where you and your Ex need to be present, would afford you protection. Unless she has actually done something, it will be hard for the Judge to impose a RO against her, so your attempt to get it may failed. This is why adding conditions to the custody and visitation between you and your Ex would help you
Was there a final hearing on the RO? That should have been the time when you were able to contest this and fight it from being imposed
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
