I have been brought to court for a t.r.o. based on some horrible accusations, which are not only true, but the other side has not even provided anything to back himself up. If I am not mistaking, if there is a temp. rest. order, it shows on your record/background check with the written 'accusations' of the other side as well. For this reason, that person has made a criminal out of me and a who*e, but has nothing to back himself at the same time. I need to know how to file a civil lawsuit against him in order to demand that he brings forward proof of everything he has claimed! Also, out hearing for the permanent rest. order is set after a month (he asked for a continuance), and I am wondering if I can serve him with the civil lawsuit forms in the court through my parent. So will my claimthat since a temp. rest. order (let's say the judge dismisses the case for our temp. rest. or.) is going to show up on my background check and people will see what he has written about me, has resulted in me not finding a job be enough reason to file the lawsuit or not. How can I file a civil action then and do I have the grounds to be successful to use his temp. rest. order accusations (which are NOT based on any threats) to take him to court for that other case.
