    What is it you want to do, Dad?

    If she files something against you, you can either defend yourself in court or hire an attorney to do so. She will have to prove her case.

    Is this a new boyfriend? How long have you been divorced?

    Sure, she can try. If the RO is granted, whether or not you can see the kids will depend on whether they're included in the order or not.

    Generally though, even if there's a RO between Mom & Dad, there are usually provisions allowing for visitation/pick-up and drop-off.

    Have you actually been served with anything?

    You're in Arkansas, yes? Mom is in Texas?

    What were the circumstances surrounding your arrest?

    And how do you know all of this?

    Is she calling you and telling you this?

    What do YOU think happened that would cause her to do something? Was there an altercation?

    Okay, I got your PM - I think you should post it here, too

    Basically, if you're served with a restraining order it will be temporary - you might have to make arrangements to have the kids picked up/dropped off by someone else, but if the RO includes the children you won't be able to see them.

    Then you'll have a hearing where the judge will decide whether the RO should remain in place.

    You can absolutely fight this, specially if the TRO (that's the temp restraining order) actually does name the children.
