Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.

You have to comply with the order unless or until its lifted. The order applies to you...so make sure you follow it. IF there is a function that you believe she may be present at, you should not attend that function.

If you arrive at a function and see that she is there, you should leave immediately.

The order is enforceable against you (you can be put in jail if you violate)...if she violates (she approaches you) she can not be put i jail...but that could be used to request the court that the order be dropped.




Please let me know if you have further questions; if so I will do my best to answer them. If not please hit the accept button, its the only way I get credit for my work.

You will have to leave, since the order is issued to you.

NOW CAN I GET ONE ON HER FOR CALLING MY WORK
Consumer Protection Lawyer: P. Simmons, Lawyer replied 8 years ago
You can try...you can request to the court to issue an order for this...but typically the court will not issue an order unless there is a concern for your physical safety.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
