Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. I'm an attorney and former prosecutor. The restraining order that you are referring to is an Injunction Against Harassment, a type of protective order issued when there is an allegation of workplace harassment. Protective orders are good for one year. Your wife should go the Protective Orders office with picture ID to request a hearing so she can contest the order. The court will notify the other party to appear. Only a judge can dismiss a protective order. If the other party fails to appear at the hearing, the order will be dismissed. If the court finds that the allegations were more likely not true, the court will dismiss the order. To obtain an Injunction Against Harassment, there must have been at least two specific acts of harassment that occurred within the one year period prior to the application.

I hope this has answered your question. If so a positive rating would be appreciated. Thank you!

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.
