My ex and I got into an argument no physical violence just yelling and I went outside to cool off. The cops showed and started questioning me and I got violent w them and a little altercation. They arrested me and told her she needed a restraining order. So she got one and now she says she wants to drop it but that that her lawyer is telling her that she can’t because the da won’t allow it and they will take custody of your children. Is this true or even legal?
