If she has been served with papers then legally she is not allowed to take DD out of state. Doesnt mean she cant or wont, but legally she can not. Might even be just because you filed the papers legally she cant. You can contact the court clerks office to double check or they will lead you n right direction. You can also file for an ER hearing if you can prove that she is attempting to remove child. That is a little more tricky to do that, you need to have the proof. Also, what were the grounds for the Restraining order? It will be dropped if she can not prove whatever her claim was. I have had to RO's against my ex. One was held up and one was dropped but with an alternate order due to his constant calling and harrassment. So it really depends. She will have to prove what ever her claim is really well. you will need to prove opposite really well. Get character witnesses or statements. But remember your time will be limited. Not too many. Also have proof of decent living situation if that is part of her claim. 2 bedroom place, that sort of thing.
