HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.So to be clear the TRO is a separate hearing to stop you from being near your son until the court rules on the pending custody matter - correct?
Do you know the status of that proceeding? Court date, anything?
Ok. So if the TRO Is before the custody hearing, then I suggest that you will want to tell the court that you are not a danger to your son. And that with the holidays, you feel this is the Mother's attempt to keep you from your son over Christmas. And have your Mother with you who will also be able to testify that she will supervise the visits until the matter is finalized with the custody hearing.
You need to be prepared to show the court you would never harm your son, that his safety is always first. You need to show the court that first and foremost. Then you can show that the Mother is only attempting to ruin your Christmas via the child.
Your spouse, or sister or anyone is willing to be there and show the court that they would supervise your visits over Christmas and until the custody hearing.
The only other thing you have is You. And you just need to show the court, that she is only attempting to ruin your son's Christmas with you and your family. That you never did those things.
How old is your son?
