IN Utah, if someone has filed a restraining order against me can I file one on them ?

I'd have to see exactly what the restraining order actually says; usually there are provisions to allow obtaining personal items.
Not having an attorney is a big mistake in a custody dispute. There are preferences for "joint custody" which may not be best in your case. As such, you need to prepare to vigorously assert your custody claims and concerns to do what truly is in the child's best interests.
You need to get with an aggressive family law attorney who has experience with divorce, custody and difficult cases. I know what these cases are like, having handled a number. Please understand that this site does not allow us to recommend any attorney or firm, you need to do your own calling or checking with attorneys directly.
You need to get moving ... as in today, to hire an attorney and handle this matter correctly from the outset. Or, you can try doing it yourself, and bumble through. Of the two options, which choice is best for your children, and your rights with those children? You should be able to get in with attorneys today, I know that I have some openings. So, check around.
