Me and my now EX-gf had been on bad terms for several weeks, having heated arguments, but mostly she avoided me completely. She packed some bags one day and left to her mom's. Out of frustration I sent a number of not so nice texts but in none of the texts did I ever threaten her bodily harm nor did I say anything of any violent nature. 3 days after her leaving our home, which she owns, I had an officer at my door telling me I had 5 minutes to get clothes and vacate the home I've lived in for 7 months and handed me paperwork detailing why I was being served the ex-parte/move out order. In the protection order my ex makes false claims that I took her phone and that I've held her down so she couldn't leave. She also lied, certifiably so, about my criminal history, claiming I had two dui's in the past 10 years, when I've only had one, and she lied about me having a protection order in 2011 filed against me, which is also untrue. I've never had any other protection orders filed against me. She included copies of texts with my colorful and explicit language, but none is threatening. I feel she used this order to get me out of the home without doing a legal 30 day eviction. Help please
The truth of allegations made on an application for civil protection order entered without hearing can be tested at the hearing set when the order was issued. What, however, is the endgame? If the house is hers, what law says you get to live there 30 days more?
