If I understand the current OR law, a RO is not required. Of course I am outraged over the federal law, as should any citizen seeking the restoration of individual liberty. For Missouri: http://codes.findlaw.com/mo/title-xxx-domestic-relations/mo-rev-st-452-315.html
Far too easy and far too much reliance on the benevolence of a judge. Facts are secondary to the absolute immunity a judge enjoys in his courtroom.
sorry OC for ME, the RO commentary was directed towards the disgruntled partner/live in lover, etc., concept, not the main thrust of this thread.
as for the misdemeanor perception for false accusations...what penalties do the MOMMA's suffer after one of their members calls 911 stating there is an individual C A R R Y I N G A G U N and i be afraid!!
please understand, i in no way wish to discuss the judicial overseer's integrity!!
