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 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.
