I just want it to go away. Do I need to show up? What happens if I don't? I just don't want the court record.
I have seen in the past that TRO's can be recalled by the petitioner? Do I have to have a lawyer to intervene for me?
Unfortunately, it is too late for that. CCAP will carry it for years even if it is dismissed.
Yes you need to show up, otherwise the restraining order will be granted.
So you probably need to obtain a local attorney.
If there are children involved it is more important because it can impact custody and visitation. You should take this seriously.
