An incident happened with my husband and I went the next day to file for a restraining order. I have since then reached out to my church and we have some counseling scheduled and with the help of family we are wanting to make our marriage work. I was granted a temporary restraining order and have a court date on Oct 17th I have not served him and don't wish to go through with the restraining order. What are my options at this point? Do I not go to the hearing or do I serve him and then go to the hearing, and request it be terminated... please advise. Thank you
Just don't show up and it will go off calendar and be dismissed; however, it is courteous to call the department clerk and tell her you don't intend to appear and want it taken off calendar.
You could show up on the 17th and ask the court to dismiss your RO request.
