Court :-/

OMG... so a bunch of stuff has happened in my life in the past 7 days. My ex lied to the court in order to get a restraining order on me. Had to go to an attorney yesterday. The first thing I told him was, "look, I have REALLY bad social anxiety, so you will have to bare with me." Overall, I think I did ok during my meeting. Stepped out for a fresh breath of air while his paralegal ran to the courthouse to pick up documents (because I never got served with the restraining order. I know he filed because he told me and I confirmed it by searching court documents). The attorney kept telling me to breath... he was cracking jokes to try to relieve the tension and stress that I was under.

NOW i'm freaking out about the upcoming court hearings. Thankfully I wont have to talk in front of the judge. That makes spending $3500 on the attorney worth it!! I'm just scared... really scared... of the unknown...

Any peaceful words of wisdom would be appreciated! :-)

He said I called him a bunch and I "harrassed" his co-workers... what he failed to mention was that, yes, I called him a bunch, because the kids and I were waiting for him to show up at his visitation. We were waiting there with pizza and soda and he never showed up... I asked his co-worker in a professional way to stop talking negatively about me since we all work in the same line of work. We only exchanged a total of 2 very professional emails.

I filed my own restraining order and provided evidence and facts. Even provided a police report that showed he has been violent towards me within the past week. The restraining order got denied... how did his get approved and mine denied? I dont understand. He provided NO evidence...AND he lied...
