I am not threatened by her personally. Her and my husband have been experiencing domestic abuse that my child has told me about that happens while he is visiting his father. She has also been driving my son around without a law required car seat. My concern is for the well being of my child being in the home with them. They have already had the police called on them because of their domestic issues. I have a TRO against my husband at this time.
You may wish to contact Children Protective Services to see what they can do for you. A non-bias second opinion would go a long way in family court. Best wishes.
The response above is general information related to law and not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
If she is not threatening you or engaging in harassment against you, you cannot get a restraining order against her for yourself. You may be able to get one on behalf of your child, but that is an uncommon remedy, especially if she is not harassing or threatening your child.
There are probably other remedies here involving a family law court that would be better suited to your specific issues.
Consult with a family law attorney.
You can request a Civil Restraining Order but you must have a factual basis of requesting this and if there has been a police report on her behavior--you should attach this as proof. If your child has witnesses any sort of violence you should indicate that as a reason as well. You indicate there is a temp. restraining order against your ex-husband, you should have included her in your TRO request.
