Hi all, The story is long and complex. After consulting with various domestic violence helplines, I realised with great horror an ex-boyfriend is abusing the process of IVO ( restraining order) to harass me. Him and his father (whom I don't know from a bar of soap - so whatever his dad said could only have come directly from my ex) had gone to police and court to accuse me of a variety of deeds such as prank calls and 'threatening' emails from fake accounts and fake orders - essentially nothing that they can directly associate with me. It was said that I am a sending them threatening SMS from payphones, I am a trained cage fighter (?!) and the dates of our communication and dating period is completely off. Yet based on these wild accusations there are 2 interim orders in place against me. Essentially there are very few sustainable facts in the applications and there are a number of few key facts are severely wrong that I can prove in a heartbeat. My ex knew I suffered from depressions and is emotionally fragile. In the course of these allegations and police arrest (no charge), I went into severe depression and had to be hospitalised under assess order for 5 days. These applications are vexatious and I have means to prove that, but I would like to know from experience if anyone knows I can, during first hearing: 1). Revoke interim order on basis of vexatious proceeding - it is easy for him to create fake emails/SMS at any point to get the police to arrest me on probable cause of 'breach' of IVO. 2). Apply for cost order should he withdraw his application at any stage or be unsuccessful in final hearing 3). Request leave of court for LLRO Any help will be much appreciated. This man had shown in various ways he wants some real damage in my life, either a big law suit, a criminal record or to literally go mental.
