My question involves restraining orders in the State of: California
My son has endured jail time, an ongoing divorce because of the continuous meddling of his mother-in-law. She has now been granted a restraining order against him; the challenge is that I think she has done this to entrap my son into violation. We pick up his children under a court order for the weekend, every Friday night she is there at the drop off point. Ever since the first night, my wife and I (paternal grandparents) have assumed the responsibility to do this. We are unable to leave for the weekend or make any plans in fear that when my son is able to drop them off or pick them up she will be there to violate the restraining order.
Is there anyway he can appeal the order. She filed under domestic violence; however, he has completed a 52-week course on domestic violence. In addition, he recently spent 14 days in jail because she (the mother-in-law) accused him of stealing her vehicle, a charge that was latter dropped.
Does he have a chance to appeal this and even possibly filing for a restraining order against her?
