I have an order of protection against my now ex boyfriend.

Hi,I have an order of protection against my now ex boyfriend. The hearing is tomorrow. I have text messages and Facebook messages where he flips between insulting my character, being inflammatory, and begging for me back (before he was served with the order). There was no physical threats or altercations during the times of the breakup. I removed myself from the residence until he was served with the order of protection and the eviction notice for my safety. What can I expect in court? What are things I should make sure to include?

My 17 yr old daughter has been living with her dad and stepmom for 2 and a half years..I have the first weekend every month and court ordered mother's day..the stepmom refused to allow my daughter to come over...I made a police report. My daughter is begging me not to report..she is deathly afraid of her stepmom..the woman is an abuser in my opinion. Extremely intimidating and controlling. The only place my daughter can function is at school, an honor student..The rest of her time is completely controlled by this woman and my daughter stays in a nervous fog..I am getting ready to ask the courts for more visitation..the stepmom meddles in our correspondence, badmouths me constantly..hurting my daughters feelings and swears her to secrecy when there is trouble at home..for the last 8 months I've happily paid for everything she needs..done my best to get along..even loaned her father 4000 last Nov. My daughter is currently going through an identity crisis and says she needs me..she needs help but is afraid..her father is so hen pecked he has no input. She had been with me up till 3 years ago..I had to go to rehab..I now can prove 3 yrs sober, have an apt., a paid for car and money in savings...I want to go back to court and get more time with my daughter. The papers were filed in NC..but we all have lived here for the last 3 years..Do I have to go back to NC court?JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry...FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes..she suggested we sign a time sharing agreement as an add on..but stepmom would not have it..JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of..
