How do I get a restraining order revoked?

I have all documentation from the trial to show that false information was given and that the person perjured themselves in obtaining the restraining order. I would also like to file acCivil lawsuit against the individuals for pain and suffering. The case lasted 2 years to clear my name. The person who filed the order has property and makes over 6 figures in income?

In most states you have to file a motion to terminate the restraining order. You do so by providing the Judge reasons why you believe the grounds for the issuance of the order to be false or malicious, and without substance. If the judge grants your order then the original restraining order will be revoked.
