TRO filed when divorce began. No disturbing the peace, no family violence, no physical harm and no threats directly or indirectly. There was never any of this to begin with but I know why it was ordered. Now we have come to an agreement to settle but her attorney wants to do a mutual permanent injunction because I said no to one in me. I am a Hunter and have had a firearm since I was 4 yrs of age. I served 3 tours and I hold my expert marksman cert because I compete. I've tried explaining this but now I am told by a friend that it can sometimes show up on a criminal background check and it could also affect my professional license of being a Nurse Practitioner. Is this true in Texas?
An injunction is a civil instrument and, as such, would not appear in a criminal background check, which pulls only criminal records. Because an injunction is not a criminal record, it would not be included. Regarding your professional license, I would find it unlikely for such an injunction to have any affect,. If your concern is that the injunction could appear in a criminal background check, which would impact your license, that is unlikely, as, again, injunctions are neither criminal matters nor criminal records.
I think your friend is talking about a Family Violence Protective Order. But this is something you should ask your attorney.
