Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If there has been no violation of the order in 12 years, then you can file a motion to vacate the restraining order. In the hearing you would need to present proof to the court that there have been no violations AND the conditions that previously were alleged do not exist any longer and as such there is no longer a need for the order. It is too late to argue that 12 years ago the allegations were false, since that had to be raised at the time the order was filed for, but you can argue that all of the conditions no longer exist and that the need for the restraining order no longer exists.
