If you have a hearing scheduling for a Restraining Order, you must go to that hearing. Otherwise, if you do not show up, but the other party shows up, the Restraining Order is most likely going to be issued and that would hunt you for the rest of your life. It would affect your future employment. Because of the severity of the consequences of issuance of a Restraining Order, it would be prudent to bring an Attorney to the hearing to ensure that your side of the issue is well articulated to the Court increasing the chance that the Restraining Order would not be issued.

I was told because it was a civil case it would only last for so long and it wouldn’t be on a back ground check for criminal. It would be for like if they wanted everything. However hey would ask what’s going on and I’d explain. The place I plan on for employment already know what’s going on and are on my side. Given the fact that the other party keeps dragging the company’s name in it and keeps breaking ethical standards. Once the (how many days he issues it for if he does) then it would be gone. It wouldn’t haunt me for the rest of my life. I just can’t be banded from one place she has requested which is why I’m going. I don’t ever want to talk to them again either.

I have everything I need in order ready to prove her wrong and her allocations are wrong. So I don’t see why the court would allow a protection order.

You must still go to the hearing to protect your rights, to ensure that the Court hear your side.

I have ethical obligation to tell you that. What you do with the information however is ultimately up to you.
