My wife filed a restraining order saying I abused her and the judge granted it for 3 years. Plus I have to do 26 weeks of Anger management classes. I was NEVER convicted of a crime and NEVER was even questioned by the police. She now calls me quite often from a "Restricted" or "Blocked" number and I finally answered it (had a feeling it was her) and it's my wife screaming at me then telling me how sorry she is and how she took it "Too far" then she ask me for money and when I told her "No I'm not suppose to be talking to you" I hung up. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do about this? I had a friend sitting there and he heard 30% of the call. Is there anyway I can take this to court and have this thing dismissed?
You can go to Court requesting the restraining order be modified or terminated. The Order may state that you are allowed to record communications. If so, then you can mostly likely record the communication and use that as evidence to help you. However, DO NOT record the communication if it is not provided for in the Order. I definitely would suggest contacting an attorney to assist you with this.
This is a question for your attorney. Although, I have to point out that 30% of the call may be an issue that works against you. Your best bet is to change your number, cut her out completely.
The response above is general information related to law and not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
