You hire an attorney who will cross examine her and her witnesses, and present your testimony, evidence and witnesses.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
If your wife is making allegations that family violence has occurred you have to hire an attorney. Do not go into the hearing without representation. In the past I have dealt with false allegations by use of text messages and email history. I would have those printed off and ready to give to your potential lawyers. Specifically, the on point text messages.
I agree with the prior posts. Use the Find a Lawyer tool on this website to consult and hire a local attorney to represent you. Although the hearing may be a temporary orders hearing, it is not something to take lightly. The outcome of the temporary orders hearing can impact the rest of your entire case.
There should be an affidavit with her allegations of domestic violence. I would provide your attorney with any documentation that you have to rebut her claims. If you have potential witnesses, I would start making sure there are available to testify and provide their contact information to your attorney. Domestic violence could potentially be a basis for supervised visitation with your child which is another reason to hire an attorney.
