1 yr RO put on 40-year old sis-n-law 9/30/15 after numerous ugly msgs to me on cell & job. Since then: 0-min contact. It's been nice to not have her "Drama" but we decided to remove RO to move forward. Papers will be served on her today. She has bipolar disorder & self-medicates with drugs and alcohol so if she decides to do something irrational now's the time. Their mother will be arriving from Calif on Friday 5/27, 2016 to help her daughter who needs some emotional/moral support (she lost her husband not too long ago). Court set for June 7, 2016 at 9 a.m. during my working hours and is not convenient for me to be away from my job. I'm pretty sure that the sister-in-law, mother, and grandmother will be there. I'm the "Wife" (married 13 yrs) and it may or may not look bad, nor good if I'm not there. My priorities are God, myself, my husb, my job but if I have to be there then I will be there. Dynamically, if I'm not present, I would be removing myself from the situation. History: She's tried to bust up our marriage, cause probs. We've moved, chgd ph#'s, lived in 5th-wheel 11 mo, restraining order.
If you filed the restraining order and you do not have an attorney, YOU HAVE TO BE THERE or the case will be dismissed.
