Re: Can You Get a Restraining Order if Your Ex- Shows Up at Your Home
A request was made by his attorney to see if I would consider a consent agreement instead of the protection order to keep it from impacting any future employment. Is this normal? I have no intentions of doing so, because a prospective employer probably SHOULD know that he's violent. I had just not heard of this before.
Yes consent agreements do exist but they are really not very enforceable. Based on how crazy your ex behaves, I certainly wouldn't consider it. A consent order would simply be him consenting to stay away from you. If he violates that consent agreement you would have to turn around a file for a protection order all over again. He has already threatened on numerous occasions to come to your house, don't give him permission to keep doing that.
