Thank you so much for responding and providing this information. I am very sorry for your boyfriend's situation and how this is affecting you as well.
I'm a little lost here - if you can please help me out - I want to get a clear picture of what is going on so that I can provide you with a legal response:
I don't see how the mother (petitioner) can use the restraining order to cause further problems. What exactly has your boyfriend done since the restraining order was filed - and why is the mother (petitioner) now faced with contempt of court and perjury charges? Who filed the charges and when is the hearing date?
What exactly does the restraining order dictate? (no telephone contact, no personal contact??)
Please let me know.
Thank you kindly.
Thank you for sharing this information with me - again, I'm very sorry for your boyfriend's situation.
As far as his ex is concerned, being that she is the one who filed the Restraining Order against him, requesting no contact by phone, or by a third, by law, she appears to be in violation of the Restraining Order. Thus, your boyfriend can go to court to appeal to the judge in order to have it revoked.
Your boyfriend should consult with a paralegal's office for assistance in the preparation of court documents.
Is there something else you and your boyfriend wish to know concerning the Restraining Order or other concerns that you may have in this matter? If so, please let me know so that I can further assist you.
Information provided herein is based on my 30 years experience as a legal secretary/paralegal in the State of California, with experience and knowledge in the State of Nevada, only.

Thank you very much for accepting my response, it's greatly appreciated. Please let me know if I can offer you any further assistance.
My very best to you and your boyfriend.
