Greetings! I am a legal expert on the site and am working on your question.Yes, the order can issue. The court can grant it where necessary and in interest of the child.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.

Does the mother have to complie with the order even tho she has an active protection order for her AND the kids in place?
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 3 months ago
If the court issues the order, yes. If disagrees, can file a motion to vacate or modify. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”
