I live in TX & my husband filed for divorce 2 days ago. He got restraining order on me but he has called/text my friend 100 times today. He hijacked my # so he could receive all my calls & texts. I can't access account to get my # back. He has texted numerous people pretending to be me. Dies he have to abide by restraining order also? Is pretending to be me illegal?
Domestic Relations cases are very dependant on the law in each state and the way each county judge may approach your particular case. Perhaps no other area of law is so peculiarly local as this is. Because of that, you really should talk to a local attorney to find out what your rights are, what the law says, what the local judge's approach may be, and what you can and can not do in your situation. This is also the one area of law where a decision made today can have very long-term consequences so it is important that you have your side heard and considered. You need to talk to a local Domestic Relations attorney who deals with your kind of case on a regular basis in your local court. You can search the Avvo website list of attorneys or call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Domestic Relations attorney near you. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to take action in court or your rights expire, so don't waste your time getting to a Domestic Relations attorney and finding out what your rights are.
