It doesn't seem to be a priority to either of you. Decide whether you want to go forward at this time, but first, speak with an attorney to see if it is to your advantage to start moving this case forward, or if you should wait.
The relevance of your past conduct is minimal in a TRO hearing. This hearing is about her, not about you. If there are concerns about you, she should file a TRO against you, but she hasn't. When you go in tomorrow, stay focused on your goal, protecting your 2 yr. old. Have copies of the doctor's exit out forms. One for the court and one for her. Tell the court of your discussion with the doctor. At all costs, keep her on the defensive. Object when she talks about your past. Ask the...
Morally, she's wrong. But that and a quarter won't get you a cup of coffee, anymore. FILE! She is content to wait until you file because she would likely have to provide support to you. Either speak with a legal aid society, or get an attorney, but file on Monday if at all possible!
You should buy a new keyboard, it appears your cap lock key is stuck. As to your predicament, file a motion for contempt, or, better yet, get an attorney and have him/her file for contempt. If she is acting against the court order, the court would like to hear that.
You don't have an easy choice. No matter the situation, your ex will have the time to answer. Those are legal requirements that have nothing to do with your needs. They work to ensure the courts have proper jurisdiction of a matter and that proper notice has been given.

If you blew .000, why not fight the ticket. Who knows, maybe you only admitted to taking a few sips because the officer was badgering you and promised to let you go if it was only a few sips. Maybe you were under so much distress, you didn't know what you were saying.
As it has been said, the DA's office has three years on a misdemeanor charge and, generally speaking, six years on a felony. But if you were given a warning, then it's unlikely you'll be charged, unless you get into more trouble. A sure way to bring your old case to the attention of a DA is to pick up a new case. Don't discuss your case with anyone outside of a prosepctive attorney.
This is an issue that your judge will determine at trial. Full legal custody is what would allow you to make that decision unilaterally. You'll need to present evidence of your children's problems and the abuse of your ex. In the end, when you don't agree, the court will make the final determination. Until then, I'd look out for your kids. Let the chips fall where they may.
I'm not sure why he would give you money from his unemployment checks.
Nevertheless, at this point, there isn't anything stopping you from moving. The reality is that he is unlikely to go into court for a divorce and if you do, you won't be permitted to move. If you intend on moving, filing would not be in your best interest.
