My question involves restraining orders in the State of: NC
I have a DVPO hearing next week. It is supposedly for threatening my wife with a gun and having thrown her son out of the house right after graduation last year. At the time he was 17, soon turned 18. I did not threaten her, let alone with a gun. Yes I have guns but am very respectful of them as I was of her.
I have face book conversations the son had with friends, while at home a week after graduation, saying he had to leave for school the following week. She had enrolled him in junior college. Needless to say this paper work debunks the son accusation.
I don't have any evidence on the threat charge other than she did this a day before we were suppose to go to mediation to get a separation agreement started for divorce. She had become extremely angry over what we, and I say we, were coming up with on the split of assets. We had a prenuptial and we both had inheritance that we had combined as marital assets so the division was right down the middle.
I do have a writing of hers, three months earlier, where she tells her blog following that I am a good natured, patient, husband. No indication of any previous problems. No other character reference: my word against hers.
I want back in the house for financial, health and emotional reasons. My whole life is in that house and we are both on the deed.
Being a first time accused, her having what could be viewed as an alterior motive, she cleaned out our bank account while I was dealing with the police, and the son complaint being obviously a lie, how do you think I will be treated by the family courts?
Any first time offenders, guilty or not guilty, I would like to hear from you also.
