My question involves restraining orders in the State of: New York
Alright, i just turned 20, and my girlfriend is 17, so she is at the age of consent (we don't have sex though)
Basically we have been together for about a year now, and only her mom knew, and her dad found out recently and he chased her out of the house and she ran-away to my house, a hour or two later i called the police to let them know i have her and they said her parents called and they just told me to get her home by the end of the night.
Also her dad threatened to kill me/put me in a wheelchair, but he didn't say it to my face, he said it to her.
This was about a month ago.
Last week i was arrested for a false charge of petit larceny (my friend stole something and then gave it to me but i didn't know it was stolen) so in court he admitted i didn't know it was stolen so they dropped all the charges against me and i have no criminal record
The issue is someone lied to her parents and said i was in jail for like a year so they believe it, and now they've been talking to all her friends parents and gathering information for what we think is a restraining order. My gf's older brother is 21 and he dates 17 year old in which they approve of, but her parents don't approve of me but they just don't say it. In which all i really want to do is get to know them like i have there daughter and prove i'm not a bad guy.
My question is, do they have a basis for a restraining order just because she ranaway to my house? i brought her right back home like the cops requested and stuff, i know that for a restraining order you can't just apply for one because you don't like your daughters boyfriend.
I do nothing but good for her aswell, i help her study in school, and the school always lets me come in and help because i do community service there and stuff, we used to hangout alot and i always respected her mothers wishes.
How do i go about this? Can they apply for one and get it? Is there anyway for me to fight it?
Also she wants to move out, is there any way she can legally do that? she supports herself and buys her own food and pays rent at her house even though she's 17 and technically doesn't have to. I don't support her moving out, but she had me add this in here.
Also please don't tell me to just break up with her, i'm not going to end a 1year relationship just because of something like this.
Also neither of her parents have yet to tell her that she can't communicate with me/have to breakup, all i really want to do is talk it out and stuff but they're very strange parents, there basically emotionally abusive to there kids, they used to be physically abusive but they stopped when her little brother started running away alot.
