Anyone know about False restraining orders in Illinois?
I asked this once before && only got 2 answers so I'll post it again! My son 21yrs. is a prodigal son. He's be in & out of our lives for the past 6-7yrs. He was diagnosed beside a mental illness at 15yr. but is in denial. He came home (again) ultimate December 07' to tell us we were going to be Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles. We got VERY excited & thought this would straighten him out. We tried to start up the lines of communication with the other Family. We were told the other Grandmother was away on a treatment for Cancer. So, we provided everything for our Grandchild & her parenthood clothes and nice shower with 40 ppl at a banquet room. Last time I saw my son was February 24th at the shower we threw. They them shut the doors! In the state of Illinois Grandparents DO enjoy rights for visitation when the child hits his first birthday. (he is now 6 1/2months old-We start filing in January) Since this time he have lied about me, wished me dead & call me the unspeakable! We had found out 2 months ago the other grandmother was NOT undergoing treatment for cancer...She be in Prison for stealing 41,000.00 from a place of worship. She is now out on parole and living in one and the same home as my grandson. Because of the file date coming up. He has file a unsound restraining order out on me. We have proof of EVERYthing he says is a feign! We go to court tomorrow, My attorney will be cross examining him. (he has NO attorney) What will this out come be? lolol, Ya I know! I actually did email Dr. Phil, We did hear subsidise but, it takes both parties in agreement to stir on. I tottally agree this is a 100% screwed up situation. Something myself & family (4 other kids) never saw this coming. We at this point are only interested in the welfare of this child. We can't budge for our Visitation or possible custody until we clear this bogus order. I do have confidence in my attorney but, at hand is always a doubt. If for some reason the courts grant the restraining decree, we will not see this baby for 2 years then we can kiss our chances of visitation good-bye! (our law suck!)
So what you need to do is get a good attorney who can keep appealing any rulings in his favor. Make sure you have the proof of the diagnosis of the mental complaint and also that you look nice and wholesome for the judge. It sounds like his partner's family is unstable, so the regard as being might take that into consideration, and if he's got a record, that will serve your case too. It sounds bad to say to bring everything out within the open about him, but it's your best chance.
