I am sorry to read about your difficuites.

Kindly explain a little more.

If you have obtained a Temporary Restraining Order against him, what is he still doing at the house? The primary reason for a Restraining Order is to prevent him from having contact with you. Why is he still at the house?

Thank you for your cooperation.

He's out of the house now but worried about the final restraining order
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
he threatened me that he was going to have his way with me when he got home so i called the police and got the restraining order
Family Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 1 year ago

Thank you for the information.

You have taken steps to protect yourself by filing for Restraining Order and calling the Police when he threatened you. You just need to be strong when you have a hearing on the extension of the Restraining Order. Do NOT let him talk you out of telling the Judge that you need the Restraining Order made permanent or extended. If you let him convince you that he has changed and he would not try to force himself on you, you would live to regret that. Chances are that he has not changed and he may actually rape you. So, be very careful. Also, if he violates the Restraining Order, you need to contact the Police immediately. You also need to file contempt action against him.

Best wishes and be safe,
