My ex has lied about everything about herself and has run all over me. She has told everyone I am abusive and that's why she left me but in reality I found out about her lies and moved out. She says she will get a restraining order on me and if I contact anyone she knows to expose her lies she will have me put in jail. Is this possible? She has destroyed my life the last couple of months and I just want her to be exposed for the pathological liar she is. I have proof of very insane lies she has told to me and my family and I want her ex husband and father of her child to know the truth.
It is possible but you need to carefully read the terms of the order to learn exactly what you can and can't do. It is best to not even get close to that line because it is all black-and-white to many cops ... they don't do nuance. You could be arrested and spend tens of thousands of dollars to defend yourself and you don't get any of that time or money or stress back when the case is dismissed or you are found not guilty.
What does informing her ex-husband really mean to you in the long run? Probably nothing. Just let go of the need to be right and you'll save yourself a million problems.
This is not legal advice. Avvo Q&A does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Read, understand and follow the entire order. I highly advice you to consult with a local attorney to avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes from not understanding the order. /RLG Team

Possibly. Protective orders often restrict a person from having harassing contact with the named individual as well as their friends and family. Protecting yourself is your highest priority.
