I had a long distance relationship that Ended terribly. The mother of my ex told me she will put a restraining order against me. I am Ecuadorian and he lives in Hialeah. I want to go there for vacation, I have no plans to see him again.
With respect to the Injunction, you can either get online with the Clerk's Office in Miami and search to see if there were any domestic injunctions granted in her favor. As far as entering the country, you should contact an immigration attorney in Florida to advise you.
I agree with Mr. Hoffman, you should go online with the Dade County Clerk of Court and research whether there ever was a case. If you were never served a petition for an injunction or a temporary injunction was ever issued, it has likely been closed. If there is an injunction, you would need to speak to an immigration attorney as to how this would affect your visa or immigration status.

I have been handling Domestic Violence Injunctions in Miami for over 20 years. You will absolutely have a problem entering the country. I have several clients who tell me that they are pulled into security at the airport every time they return to the U.S., and they have to wait 3 hours to be released. You definitely need a lawyer to help you remove or modify the final order.
I agree with Mr Hoffman, but double check online & make sure you didn't miss anything.
