My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Colorado (El Paso County)
I have a permanent protection order placed on me by Colorado (El Paso County) Court after leaving the Army in 2008 by my (now) ex-wife. I did not show up for the case because I was low on funds after leaving the Army, she won by default. I do not have a criminal record what-so-ever. I have never stepped foot in Colorado. I am still confused as to why this was placed on me. Nonetheless, I have to deal with it.
I am in the process of filing a petition to remove said protection order (obtained a clean FBI background check, mailed background check to the court to process their own background check on me, and will soon file to remove order).
Since leaving the Army, I have obtained the federal government's highest security clearance. I have also received my bachelors, now working on my Masters degree. I have not been in contact with the plaintiff since the order was placed on me.
Will I need to prove my security clearance to the court?
Having affidavits from my brother-in-law who is a cop and a sister who is a firefighter stating that I am and never was a violent person or a threat help?
What else will help me prove my case to have the restraining order lifted?
