Update: The intent of this thread was to share the process of what happens with your firearm rights when a restraining order is placed against you. From date of being served through the process. This is NOT legal advice, your experience will differ/vary so please consult an attorney for specifics on your case. 1: Any special permits pertaining to firearms are terminated at delivery of RO (CHL's etc) 2: Firearm rights are NOT relinquished when the RO is filed (or when you are served) 3: If you: fight the RO and lose and/or fail to respond within the 30 days and/or fail to appear at your day in court then at that point you are required to remove access to firearms 4: This is not taking into account SB525 and it's effect on RO's (with or without merit)- that is an entire different can of worms! 5: Please keep in mind this is NOT to drum up sympathy, start a kickstarter, goFundme account, this is for information to help legal firearms owners navigate the RO process. My RO was dropped due to the petitioner's attorney seeing all of the evidence that was against the petitioner which showed there was NO way possible for any of the accusations to have happened. By the way, never delete text messages, facebook messages, online logs of travels or anything that possibly could remotely be used to back your side of a story. RO was dropped on 7-13-2015 at 9:00 am (right before trial). Paperwork was delivered to local Sheriff at 1:00 on 7-13-2015 to have CHL reinstated CHL delivered via mail on 7-16-2015 Applied for transfer at the new County Sheriff's on Tuesday (7-21-2015) Transferred license arrived on 7-24-2015 All in all now that the process of everything is over and the state doesn't see me as a wacko it's nice to know how soon to expect things to turn around after you clear your name. I will keep this updated up to the point when CHL is reissued and in my hand. After that the process is and will be completed. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Original Post Below: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Edit 09-05-2015 As a side note: Since I'm such an "evil" guy... I was awarded sole temporary custody by the judge on September 4th 2015. I shall have this temporary custody until the trial that could be upwards of two years from now.. Edit 06-15-2016 Awarded full sole custody. No longer temporary. Guess I'm still not the evil guy.
