Removing Restraining Orders From Your Record

This Blog receives a lot of letters (emails) from readers who want to share their restraining order stories with others.
If you want to share your story, get advice, or just vent about how you got screwed by a restraining order, stalking, harassment, or domestic violence related Law, this Blog is a good place to do it! 
With that said, here is Lisa's story below.

I would like to share my story.  I met this guy on facebook.  Seemed nice
enough to have a friendship with.  Anyway, this guy turned out to be a total
crazy person.  He blocked me on facebook, but then got his friends to befriend
me, I wasn't even aware it was his friends until later.  They played mind games
with me, stalked me,  harassed me.  He even went as far as requesting my
friends friendship, setting up fake profiles and tried to see my profile
details in that way.  I had to open a whole new profile just to get rid of the
constant harassment.  I did see a lawyer who, because we lived cities apart,
said I could only send him a warning letter and maybe go down to that city and
file an order for peace ( harassment order) but he would have to sign for it
and if he wants to, he can contest it.  So I found out later he somehow, with
the help of his police officer friends, got a restraining order against me,
without my knowledge.  I am going to see a lawyer about this, because if I was
not aware of it and no documents was send to me, how on earth would I know to
not bump into him in the city he lives, as my family lives there and I visit
them once a year.  I just want to warn people that there are crazy people out
there that think they are above the law, when they are the ones stalking and
harassing people.  Don't allow people to bully you like that.  I am just
waiting for us to get our inheritance and I will be applying to have all those
restraining orders removed, because it was gained illegally and with the help
of corrupt police personal.  They could loose their jobs, but should have
thought about that, before helping their friend.  

Kind regards Lisa

Racism And Virginia Restraining Orders ?

Here is an Email I received today from a Virginia resident, and reader of this restraining order blog. 
How a court in the State of Virginia, could possibly grant a Civil Protection Order to protect a Man from a Woman, after he admitted in open court she had not threatened him, and did not feel he was in any danger quite frankly stinks! But, she is Black, and he is White! It sure sounds like a racist judge IMHO, to me, based upon the facts I have in this case. Unfortunately, Racism appears to be still alive and well, in this case.

Has anyone else ever encountered what appears to be blatant Judicial Racism, in the granting, or refusal to grant Restraining Orders in the State of Virginia ? 

Here is the email from the victim in this Virginia Restraining Order Case, reproduced in it's entirety, including her name! I offered to change or hide Laura's name, to protect her right to privacy. Laura felt so strongly that she did nothing wrong, and was a victim of blatant Racism from the judge in Virginia, she told me to go ahead and publish the email just the way she sent it! 




Good Afternoon. My situation is as follows. My ex-husband who I left

Violation of a Restraining Order Case in Tampa


Our Tampa Restraining Order story is still unfolding as we speak. My daughter was 5 when Florida Department Of Children and Families made me get a protective order against my son to remove him from the home and to keep him away from my daughter. It was not because of domestic violence, it was because he was not able to foresee dangers ahead and Florida Department Of Children and Families was worried that due to his behaviors she would in the future get hurt. A few years later, my niece came to visit and got mad at him so she tried to get his kids taken away from him in court in downtown Tampa. While they were looking at places to put the grand kids, I told the DCF case worker about the restraining order we got in Tampa Court, which allowed us to have peaceful contact. She informed me that the restraining order we got in Tampa was no longer effective, so we assumed that there was a statue of limitations on that. At the time, it was 5 years past the order of protection. Right after Thanksgiving, my son was helping me clean my yard, and my daughter who will be 18 next week mouthed off to him, cursing at him and started walking off while he was trying to talk to her. He tried to restrain her, and she elbowed him. He put her to the ground and she fought him. Long story short..the restraining order we got in Tampa Court was not dropped, and he got arrested not only for violation of that order, but for trying to discipline his sister who is 10 years younger than he is. My daughter asked the Hillsborough County State Attorney to drop the charges, and the state prosecutor told both of us that he was not going to.  Just read your blog and thought that this Tampa Violation of a Restraining Order case might be interesting to you as well.
