Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 7 months ago

A Restraining Order cannot be overturned solely because there was no proof of violence. Putting someone in fear of imminent physical harm is the standard. If you can show she lied about being in fear of imminent physical harm, then you would be successful in getting the Court to vacate the Restraining Order. Otherwise, you are not going to be successful. So, if you have evidence that your wife along with her corroborating witnesses lied, you have to provide that evidence to the Court.

Goodluck with your case,

Can she bring new witness
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But we can’t add evidence
Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 7 months ago

You have to follow your local rules to inform the Court and other parties in the case of witnesses or any new witnesses to be called at trial. The opposing party must do the same also.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
