My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Wisconsin. I have been caring for my elderly grandparents for more than two years.
During this time, usually with some space between outbursts, my father has harassed me and my grandparents and repeatedly refused to assist them when they have needed or requested it. On several occasions he has screamed and threatened me and other relatives, and done this to both my grandmother and to me, in front of others, too.
My dad has manipulated and demanded money out of my grandmother.
Recently he went sort of berzerk and started coming by their house 2 or 3 times a day and scaring the hired help with erratic behavior, contradicting medical instructions, and yelling and screaming.
I successfully obtained a restraining order limiting his visits to supervised times only.
He is appealing saying he only had 1 business day and didn't have time to find a lawyer, he has new witnesses and new information, and he didn't have time to question my witnesses. He also says my grandmother's guardianship is at issue, but he doesn't know that she has named a guardian if one is needed in her will, but it isn't him.
How likely is his appeal for a rehearing? I'm still putting 48 or more hours every week into actual care for my grandmother and grandfather, while working two jobs and caring for my husband, children and home... meanwhile this man just causes problems instead of helping... I don't want to lose sleep having to prepare for another hearing.
