HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.So the documents you have been served have a hearing date on them?And it is in Texas or NM?
I am going to shut down for the evening. But will be back tomorrow. I will opt out so that you can get your service more promptly.Thanks for your patience and another professional will help you in a bit.
I will try to best answer your question.
You will need to file a written response to her motion. The response has to be paragraph specific meaning for each allegation she raises in a paragraph you either need to admit or deny that particular paragraph. If you deny her allegation you can put a counter statement with your version of the event. I would absolutely attach copies of phone records or text messages or emails that establish it as her family contacting you. You need to be very careful with this as most restraining orders contain prohibition against communicating with a protected party even via third persons.
You will also deny that you have the items that she claims and make her have to prove it.
I would also include a counterclaim for your costs of having to travel back to New Mexico to defend a frivolous motion.
I hope this information and advice is helpful and I wish you the best of luck dealing with a situation.
Would you kindly rate my answer. Thank you
