Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I have had several decades of experience in family law, and in my opinion, anyone who tries to represent themselves in defense of a restraining order is nearly certain to lose. Even with an attorney, the courts are extremely likely to err on the side of caution, whenever there is some issue that may negatively affect the child(ren)'s best interests. Consequently, if you have a known problem with controlled substances (or anything else), then you absolutely need legal representation to prepare a defense.
