We had a two day restraining order hearing, ex was trying to overturn it. I won! I am so happy. This will be huge for our custody case. It was intense and hard to sit facing him and listening to him but i got through it. I filed this case in August 2008 and after 10 court appearances, one of them in labor, i won! Perserverance worked. My lawyer is so happy too, we originally filed an order back in Jan. 2007 but didn't get it then. I have a 3 year order. Going back through all the abuse was emotionally draining but keeping the children and i safe is so worth it. Thanks to all of you who have been supporting us.

God, I'm so so happy for the outcome Avani. You are so incredibly strong and an inspiration to all of us. I'm so glad you can relax about the custody case now. You needed that!

Yay!

Don't mind criticism. If it is untrue, disregard it; if unfair, keep from irritation; if it is ignorant, smile; if it is justified it is not criticism, learn from it.

I am so happy to hear this news. It has been such a long haul for you and your family. I'm glad to hear you were awarded 3 years.

SO glad you were granted your order Avani. I'm impressed that your state does 3 year orders, mine does one year with an option for a 2nd year with another hearing. Still I am happy for you. Two days worth of that would be a lot to sit thru!
