I have filed a restraining order against someone i used to date. what are things that I need to sow burdon of proof? I had spoken to an attorney and he had stated that I dont have to submitt proof by emails, declarations by people that I spoken to the day of the incident and saw the bruises etc, I was told the only thing i need to submit is my declaration and my childs declaration because she witnessed the dv incident. im not very sure of this attorneys answer? I believed the more information i subitt the better off I am right?The problem is that this person doesnt have a criminal history . The main defense is that they are going to say that there reserve military career will be ruined? Also that this will effect there back ground clearance checks? Is this a good enough reason for a judge not to order the Restraining Order? Also when I had submitted my declaration and my childs declaration this persons attorney has now withdrew from the case and this person is now having to get another attorney? the 1st attorney was a criminal attorney so why would they withdraw? this makes no sense?
