Customer Question

an ex has had me served with an ex parte OFP. this is based on allegations from a domestic case which the state has proposed for a CFD. can she still present this case in support of the OFP at the hearing? If so, how relevant are they since it was the state prosecutor that proposed the CFD?
JA: You're dealing with a tough issue. But don't worry -- you're in good hands. I know the lawyer has information that can help. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: yes
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: I was told that the case has little relevance to the support of the OFP since the allegations are being dismissed.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?
Customer: the petitioner has a long history of deceit and untruth, To include fabricating stories to get her way. She also is currently on probation for a felony conviction for fraud and identity theft.

Hello, Is the ex-parte order civil or criminal? In what US state is this going on? The abbreviation CFD is not one that is common outside of your state. I'm assuming it's some kind of a dismissal, but can you tell me what it stands for?
