I do have one more last thing to add. My wife felt threaten enough to go get a TPO but then two days later started calling my mom telling her that I needed to come there to get my vehicle or she would have it towed. and I needed to come now.
It sounds like a trap. You will find that the courts will put you in loose, loose situations over and over again.
Short version: My STBX filed contempt charges against me for missing one child support payment, which I promptly paid. We agreed as part of the settlement that she would drop the contempt order. She did not. She calls the police on me at every exchange of the children. So, when I missed court anticipating that she had dropped the case I was served with a warrant for missing court. She then documented my not coming to get the kids, which she said she had to have the police at to 'feel safe.' Thus, my new lawyer advised me not to see my kids because jail was not worth it.
This was over a month ago. My lawyer and her lawyer just talked her into 'dropping the warrant.' I hope to see my kids in the next few days.
To make matters worse she is now claiming that I have 'refused to see the kids for over a month.' Don't know how it will affect me in the long-term, but the way the system has worked thus far most likely the judge will see it her way.
See, if you show up to pick-up the truck you are in contempt and risk jail. If you don't she will have it towed at your expense. Either way you loose.
That story I told you is more detailed, but we don't have a few pages. And it is only the latest example-not the harshest example. I just want you to understand what you are up against. You need to start getting prepared NOW! The system is set up that men can literally end up in jail because of a divorce.
