My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Florida
It all started by me letting my daughter spend the weekend with her biological fathers mom. The night before she went she received a spanking from my husband with a belt. She has been acting up really badly. And the next day I let her go to her grandmas the morning after she spent the first night I received a call saying that she was upset she had bruises. That day I had to call the cops to go to there house because the father wouldn't let Me get her and started making accusations of abuse.. When the cops came they was asking what happened we fully cooperated.. me and my husband and they kept making the situation difficult with the cops. and the Cops was trying to give me my daughter turns out they call DCF and they took pictures and made us come in the next day to take more pictures. They told us that they was going to get somebody in the house before she could come back but before they could do that the father got a restraining order on my husband and he has to go to court now I cant get my daughter because she can't be in the house with him. I have two other girls and they checked them and they had no bruises they try to say it's because they are my husband's biological kids but we never had this happen with my daughter before my husband has been raising her since she was one year old he has been the father figure. We have witnesses to the fact that he has never abused her. I just don't know what to do and the restraining order made it more difficult considering my husband does have a back ground but not of child abuse. please help me she is only 4 and I don't want her to stay with her biological father he is very immature and always put her off on his mom they both smoke weed. we are just trying to teach our children right and we discipline them not always by spanking it just depends on how bad it is and what they do but if not spanking my kids means getting my child back that's what I will do. please help us I need my baby backs.
