The mother of my daughter recently filed for a restraining order against me and included my daughter in the order. She has done this before. We've been separated for about six years and have joint custody. Last time we had a legal scuffle is when I sued her from a loan she never repaid about two years ago. She counter-sued me for harassment but the judge told her it's not harassment when I'm just trying to see my daughter and she's making it unnecessarily difficult ( I won). She's playing the same games again except the last time she filed an ro it was just for her so I didn't bother messing with it. This time it includes my daughter. How should I go about getting my daughter back? Is there any way to get court dates moved up so I can my rights reinstated?
