Child was not alive during the time of alleged abuse on mother. Parents have been split up almost all of childs natural life. No police reports were ever made concerning this alleged abuse. There is some alleged medical evidence of abuse on mother but no way to prove that the father was responsible for injury other that testimony from biased parties.
You have asked a question that is best answered by an attorney who has viewed the Petition for Domestic Violence Civil Protection order and can review the allegations with you. Generally speaking, testimony regarding a civil protection order can include past history, which may give the Court insight into why the Petitioner was in fear of imminent physical harm. The Court can determine if it believes witnesses are biased.
The court can consider all testimony and evidence presented to determine whether the person is in need of a protection order to protect them from future harm. If someone is filing a CPO on you you should retain an attorney to assist you. Civil Protection Orders often show up on background checks and can limit your rights such as owning, possessing, or carrying a firearm. If you would be charged with violating the CPO you could end up with a criminal charge and in jail. Protect yourself and hire an attorney.
