Can I get a protective order against my soon to beex for breaking into our home while I was not there?

My soon to be ex broke into our home while I was at working, looking for his firearms. He lied to the police and stated that he climbed in through an open window on the side of the house when he really ripped the screen out of my basement window and broke in. He is mentally unstable but legally may possess firearms. The firearms are currently in custody of the police for 30 days. I still fear that he may break in again and take our daughter whom we do not have a custody agreement for yet.
