Thank you
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 10 months ago

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this.You need to check with the court on Monday to see if this is legitimate.If it isn't contact the police here to enforce the prior orders.You will need a copy of those.You may need to consider your own lawyer here to assert your rights in all of this and seek to end the stalemate.The TRO does not appea valid.You can try the police here to see if they will help you obtain the child.Otherwise if there is a TRO then you can respond to the TRO and attend hearing on this matter.And a lawyer may be needed here, sounds like they are trying take away your rights here.

You decide whether to try the police now or when you figure all of this out on Monday,A blank TRO here is not effective as it was presented to you.It is unsigned and no hearing date, see if the police will get you the child for your visit.

I appreciate the chance to help you, prayers to you here.Again sorry you are having to deal with this.

If you can positive rate5 stars here it is much appreciated,

I took the police yesterday and got my son back. Per current order. Nothing appears to be filed. I looked online to see of he filed anything yesterday but it's dv case and it says no records found for this case. He's doing this because he's angry didn't want break up now he wants to just push me out of the way. I don't have money for attorney. What do i do
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 10 months ago

Well wait and see if they pursue this, at this point its not valid and nothing restrains you from visiting.
