Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
What do you mean by "more damage to him"?
Do you mean will it look worse in front of a judge for him?
Are there any children involved?
Ok, so what do you mean by "more damage to him"?
Ok, well it will definitely make him look worse in the eyes of the court and this would show up on any type of civil background check. So if an employer runs a background check, it will show up. Further, if he violated the order, then it becomes a criminal action and then shows up on a criminal history check.
So yes, converting an emergency order to a temporary order is definitely more damaging to the defendant. And even more so if the temporary order is later converted to a permanent order..
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
So as long as he doesn't violate order it will just be on civil background check
Correct. It is a civil matter unless there is a violation of the order...then it goes criminal.
