Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Ok, Kirk, Do I need to vacate or drop the restraining order first? Is there a time line on doing this? You're saying to exspunge it, not seal it correct?
Why didn't my attorney know this? Or do it?
Kirk, The current Judge lost the election and will be gone in July.
Should I wait until he's gone to file to seal or exsponge it in front of a new judge? Is this smarter to do with a new judge?
Isn't it harder to vacate it?
Well he didn't want to seal it 2 months ago (for no apparent reason).
My ex and 3 other attorney's witnesses agreed to seal it. So yes, maybe a new Judge would work better.
Yes, I moved 15 miles away from him over a year and a half ago.
How do you suggest I go about filing this? Can I do it without an attorney?
Are you there?
How often are ro's sealed or expunged? What's the success rate in this?
Do you know any local attorney that is successful in this?
Ok so your saying I should wait until July until its been vacated, then go ahead and have it sealed, correct?
Why have an attorney?
Are you there? What should my argument be?
I owned a business for 22 years under his name and if people look this up they'll see the ro. Also my son wants to work for me now and he has his dad's name.
It affects my income greatly.
My last attorney was very disappointing. He didn't have another case to site when the judge requested it.
Ok I'll look for the forms and try to do it myself. I work with attorney's by placing paralegals, this is very embarrassing., as they are at the courthouse daily. My friend is an attorney too.
Exspongement or sealing what's the difference? What do you recommend?
Also, my ex never obeyed the court order to give me 15 furniture items. So my attorney wrote him a letter 2 months ago.
But his wife threw everything out 1 month ago and they said I had plenty of time to pick up things at the house. But actually with an ro I couldn't retrieve anything. What shall I do about this?
Violating a court order? Can I get money for what was on the list. It's not the first time he's been in contempt. He held maintenance from me for 14 months.
Is this called a retrial in the exspongement?
Ok thanks. XXXXX do this now or after he lifts the RO? I want him to lift it.
a motion for contempt for the furniture, is there a time line on this?
Why does he keep ignoring court orders?
It will be lifted in July when its up, I hope! so what shall I do first? Do I need to show proof that I had the furniture or is the list from the court order enough?
I'm trying not to make him upset so that he lifts the RO. Do you think if he has to pay me $8000. for the furniture or so he'll keep the RO enforced?
Will he be upset enough not to remove r o?
If there's no time line on the contempt of court order then I'll do it AFTER the release.
Thank you very much!
Right. Can you please site an example of the sealing of the ro and the contempt on furniture court ordered? Thanks
Can you please site an example for me?
Do you think it would be more convincing if I came forward with one?

What do you think of this for the sealing of the RO?
ok i will
Did I site a good example?
for which case the expungement or the contempt?
OK Is the example good for my case?
Do you have an example for the other contempt case?
Ok thanks any example?
I'm going to sign off now.
What's an example for the contempt case?
Should I file the exspongement prior to the release?
Oh like the fact he was in contempt prior to this order?
