I filed a temporary restraining order against my child’s father when he attempted to choke me to death after we broke up almost 5 years ago. Before we got together he did time in jail for attempted murder. My child is now 5 and it has been almost 2 years that I have allowed my child's father to see him. He is now threatening me and my partner and has been up to my job cursing at me. If I file for a restraining order what rights will he have to our child? I plan on filing for sole custody but want to get the restraing order in place as soon as possible for he is threatening to kidnap my son. My child's father is telling me that his past has been wiped clean and that if I take him to court for sole custody of our son I will not win because I am a lesbean. Will the past restraining order not show up? Can his attempted murder charge be wiped clean? Will I be looked at as an unfit parent because I am a lesbean?
