I recently had a protective order taken out against me on my soon to be ex. I've spent 32 years of my life being abused. I have 3 children 2 are minors. I have no previous record of any kind and now I can't contact my kids for 3 years. I'm completely heartbroken and destroyed. I have spent the last 20 years of my life with them. I dedicated my entire life to them. I took the abuse just to be with my kids. I couldn't believe the judge wouldn't listen to one word I said. It was like I wasn't even in court. My soon to be ex got our children to take the stand and lie for him. I'm completely destroyed without them. When your children are your life and an abuser takes them from you. You have no idea what thoughts go through mind. Everyday I wonder if they are ok, is he abusive with them. Has he assaulted them in anyway. He met me when I was 13 he was 23. He sexually assaulted me and abusede ever since. How do I fight back. How do I get my children.
If the order protects the children as well as the soon to be ex, you can address this in the divorce or other action. You should get an attorney.
