Restraining Orders Denied Based on Mother Being Caught Misleading Court
Mother runs into court without notice to Father and gets restraining orders to protect herself and the parties’ daughter against Father based on misleading allegations that Father had taken the child out of California without her consent. Attorney Stephen Rocha is retained just about a week prior to the court date and is able to put together the background on this 12 year case and prepare a written response to oppose the restraining orders on behalf of Father. At the hearing, Mother’s credibility is destroyed based on her misleading the court in her original request. Mother had failed to disclose to the court that the parents had agreed out of court that Father was able to take the minor child out of state. Not only did the court completely deny Mother's request for restraining orders and terminate the temporary orders, Attorney Rocha was able to get Father additional visitation orders Father did not have prior to that court date and expanding his visitation rights. Here we have another example of Attorney Rocha fighting for your rights. The process to request restraining orders was misused to gain advantage over father, and Attorney Rocha was able to get the request thrown out based on his experience and aggressive representation.
