Three Year Restraining Order After Hearing Granted
We represented a married woman with children who had an emotional extramarital affair via text messages (known as “sexting”). Her husband discovered the text messages. Our client asked the other party to stop contacting her so she can save her marriage and family. The other party refused. He continued to contact her despite her pleas for him to stop. The other party also insulted her husband, provoked her husband, and threatened her husband. To make matters more complicated, the other party previously admitted to a history of 5150 psychiatric holds and building a handgun. We believed there was a credible threat to our client and her family so we filed a restraining order against the other party. We first had a temporary restraining order in place, and now the Court granted a 3-year restraining order after the hearing.
