My question involves restraining orders in the State of: California
What exactly happens in a hearing for a restraining order? I have a TRO, next week is a hearing for a "permanent" RO. I am not sure what to expect. I am the plaintiff. I have a narrative written out because I am easily flustered. The whole saga is a bit long, but my writing is concise with dates and documentation. I am just not sure what to expect - as in will I just be asked why I'm there and then be given the opportunity to read through what has transpired? Or will the judge as specific questions first? He will have an attorney, I will not. I am also concerned about the possibility of having to pay his legal fees.
