I have recently had a Family Violence Restraining Order placed on me by a lying, cheating, manipulative ex and his new girlfriend. The only purpose of this order is to prevent me from exposing his lies to his new girlfriend (who he was cheating on me with for four months before we broke up, then cheating on her with me after we broke up). Obviously neither of us knew about the other. Yes I overdid the texts and calls but after five years made it clear all I wanted was one conversation and then we could all move on with our lives. Rather than give me that respect he took this order out on me to protect the lies he was telling his new girlfriend. I don't care about the order, I just want to move on with my life, but there are things I feel his family have the right to know about his behaviour. Is it in breach of the order if I contact his family members?
