I am sorry that you are going through this. If you are out of the country during the time she has alleged you have caused the need for a restratining order then you shoul assemble that proof and bring it to a local GA attorney and he or she will fight to have the RO removed. Additionally, you need local counsel to protect yourself financially. Take care and work with a good local attorney.

If the restraining order has been issued in your absence, you need to file a motion to lift the order. If only an ex parte order has been issued, you should have an upcoming court date that you can attend and defend against the issuance of the tpo. You will need the assistance of an attorney to handle this matter. Also, unless you are returning very soon, you need to make a trip back here to handle this now.
If your wife has moved in with another person, you may also need to consider filing for divorce. You will also need the assistance of an attorney to help you with this. Call me if I can be of assistance.
