Know about the restraining order process: If you want to be ahead of your ex, it would be wise to know of the entire restraining order process. Once you are aware of the process, you would be able to defend your case. It would also benefit you if you know of the implications of fighting a restraining order against your name.
Obey the rules: It is a must to obey and comply with the rules at all times. If you make one single mistake it can go against you in your battle for child custody. If at any time you break the rules, you can be up for an arrest as breaking orders is a criminal offense. Even if you try and contact your ex, it would be considered as a criminal offense.
