I barely turned 18 a month ago and have had an ongoing relationship for over a year with my girlfriend who is 17 her mom doesn't like same sex relationships so she has stalked me and figured out I was 18 so now she is trying to keep us apart by having a restraining order against me.
You should be very careful to avoid sexual battery or other charges relating to dating a person under 18, same sex or not. Your civil restraining order issue could very easily turn into criminal charges. Find a good lawyer to help you or find a girlfriend who is 18 or older.
You'll need to retain an attorney and fight the TRO. If the protected party is a minor and you're an "adult," you'll lose.
