Ok. Thanks for the information.

If he is in violation of the restraining order, you can file a motion for contempt and ask the judge to fine, punish or even jail him for violating the order.

Also, if he is knowingly making false statements about you in an attempt to harm your reputation, you would have a right to sue for defamation as well.

He didn't violate the order when he called me I allow that on my restraining order but he never came to my house and I never beat him up I did not see him after September 2nd when he was assaulted or fell off his bike he called me he got hit by a car something once so I don't know if that was when it happened so anyways he pressed charges against me being so he could go into domestic violence place and once he got in there he was off the streets and then he learned everything he could learn he's very intelligent and now he's soccking it to me because he's afraid they're going to find out that he lied that I did it to him it could have his bike has been stolen he's been robbed because he lives on the street or he lived on the street I don't know whether I was going to file assault charges against him but they're going to believe I think I'm just doing it to do it but that is why I got the restraining order in the first place so he can stay away from me because he was arrested for domestic violence in the past against me but now his stupid commissioner that granted him his restraining order won't listen to me he baited me into saying things and then he just kept it and he didn't keep the and he deleted the stuff that he was saying he has a friend that owes him a favor and he asked him to do it for this but he would do it to take care of me and my son and I better watch my car cuz something's going to happen to it so then I can go ahead and then don't know who did it and then I'll tell him you violated and then he tells me that's okay I'm going to fix you you don't know me Eagle he was going by my house he told them that I was throwing stuff away he should have been by my house and on top of everything else he moved 2 blocks away from me so that he can just start it now if I go to the store or something I'm going to be in violation of his restraining order he's setting me up and now I have no way to protect myself he could come in here and kill me he's a convicted felon he has 13 folonies and then he tells the judge and I may or may not live with my girlfriend she's not even divorced and he has no shame to sit there and tell the judge he is living with another woman I mean I don't care I really don't it's just a fact that he just broadcasted he's not even divorced yet and they just accept it they don't care they think I'm assaulting him because he was in that place and he didn't deserve to be in there cuz he was a convicted felon who did domestic violence in the first place only they didn't check his record who is Criminal damage and knowingly assaulting me and he pleaded guilty but they put them in the diversion program he was in there with Anthony Weiner and then he didn't finish it because he did didn't finish it went NSA program I hope I'm not getting charged $5 for every one of these questions because my bank is going to bounce and I'm not really getting any help nobody wants to give me help me nobody believes me
