I have been served a ex parte injunction

Customer Question

I have been served a ex parte injunction in which my ex parter wanted a 6month period. she called the police on 3 occasions 4 years ago, however I was not arrested. She made allegation I was abusive and hit her in face while pregant in 2012 however this is not true, no police involved. The recent in incident was 2 weeks ago, where she said her sister forced her to call them. however again she lied to them, and the assult charge was dropped againist me by police not any evidents. after this my ex invited me over the house 3 times, up to the day before the injuction was served. I recorded the first night, where she said I can have the children and saying things like I dreamt i was pregrant etc . I also had the children the week before on my own. and me and ex went to a concert two weeks prior to this and came back in the night. her dad takes her out for the day and then she changes how she speaks to me threatening and being nasty. I have texts, audio, and video of her staying she going to kill me in her anger, her texts to me have been abusive over the past 5 months and then nice to me, and I have reply with nice thing like saying lets talk, why u being like this. what chance of the injuction being dropped I have been given a 3hr court hearing to oppose this we been on/off for 8 years


she has said i could intentionally or unintentionaly kill her, and that im threat to assault her, so she wanted a exparte


i have no criminal record and work with young children and vunerables adults

The next time the the respondant might intentionally kill her or unintentionally. I must protect me and the children
