Question:

What can I do when I am mentioned in a family court order that I committed domestic violence against my girlfriend and its false?

The ex-husband made the accusations with no proof. This is one reason that the judge ordered that I cannot be around my girlfriends children. It sickens me to believe that a judge would include this in an order without any proof. I have zero criminal history and I am employed with Department of Homeland Security.

Answer:

Unfortunately, since you are not a party to the case between your girlfriend and her ex, you have no standing to object to the Orders of the Court. However your girlfriend does have standing. She can object and provide evidence. If the Court has not enetered a final order in the case it might not be too late for her to pursue this issue. She shouyld contact an attorney immediately about this issue.

Good luck!
