Customer Question

hi I recently got a emergency protection order placed against me. my gf is accusing me of using drugs around and in our apartment and our 5 month old daughter. I did not ever use drugs around our home I have been battling addiction to alcohol and drugs my whole life but have been alcohol free for 1 1/2 years but have used drugs time to time when my willpower crashed. I have never used any around them and never spent our rent or food money and never put them in harms way. on 3 occasions in the 4 years we were together she found some parafinalia wh itch I had hidden in a tightly sealed container last week while I was at work she packed up all of our possessions and left with our daughter and refused to let me see our daughter. a week went by and I told her that I was going to talk to a lawyer because I love and miss our daughter with all my heart and she had no right to keep her from me. instantly she called and got a emergency protection order against me. is she allowed to do that? I never gave her grounds to do so I only wanted to talk on the phone. what's ur thoughts
