last year, a restraining order was issued while tim lived in a city which is a 25 minute drive. it expires (but will be renewed) in january of 2012. |
in 5 days, tim is moving a 1 minute drive from the person who has a restraining order on them. currently, the order says tim is to stay 20 yards away (they will be moving 5 blocks away.)
there is a court date for a custody hearing in two weeks. could/should these issues be brought up to the judge, and what are the odds that the restraining order can be modified to make the keep-away distance longer?
as a bit of info, so long as tim drives by the other person's house, they can be arrested. for this reason, it's kind of idiotic to move so close but tim loves chaos, drama, and the "thrill" of it.
any and all help much appreciated.
eta- past history on "tim": has a restraining order for disrupting plaintiff's workplace, for threatening plaintiff, for harassing and badgering plaintiff, for returning to plaintiff's workplace though advised not to. though those seem mild in the grand scheme of things, the order was prolonged because of tim's history -- anger management, several other restraining/harassment protection orders which have been violated, domestic violence, road rage, etc.
