Recent Order of Protection questions

Connecticut Family law, please help.. I recently found out

Connecticut Family law, please help.. I recently found out that my ex-wife was committed in the state of Massachusetts and diagnosed with Schizophrenia and bi-polar disease. This has been happening all over the country however; nobody would listen to me. We were divorced in New York in 2011, she has lived all over the country getting frivolous orders of protection against me every time I asked to talk to my daughter even though I had visitations. In the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2015, when she lived there, she was granted sole custody because I would not sign for a Passport for my daughter and she needed sole custody and won. Her residence is currently Connecticut, and while she was committed into a mental hospital my daughter was in foster care, I drove up and filed a motion for sole custody and requested an Exparte, the Exparte was denied however; the motion for custody was out right dismissed without even being heard because she had sole custody granted by Virginia from when she used to live there. I spent $365 + travel cost and went up there and they would not even look at any evidence which I obtained personally from the state of Massachusetts. etc, furthermore, I have to go back for an order of protection hearing because one was filed against me by her for harassment because I went finding out what happened to my daughter. The judge just dismissed it and said it had to go through Virginia even though, I don't live nor does my daughter or ex-wife live there, when I asked about the incident when this occurred last week to a friend who works the court up there the only excuse was, " Connecticut is just really biased and men never win", due to the severity of the situation I refuse to accept that, what am I missing here and doing wrong? I live in South Carolina and the fees are getting expensive hence why I can't afford an attorney. How did I mis-file to cause an outright dismissal and not even a denial? Please help

Nashville, TN. My ex made a list a mediation of things that

Nashville, TN. My ex made a list a mediation of things that were his. I had an order of protection, so I chose not to be in home when he came to get his things as listed. He took WAY more than he should have, including things that I had before we were married. I suffered major anxiety in dealing with him, so I didn't immediately do anything. This was July 31, 2016. Can I sue him or anything to get things or value of things back? He took coffe table, ipad, lawn equipment, gun from my grandmother and many other things. I have pictures of before and after. I really wanted to let it go and move on, but it's not fair... just asking

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?
