What to do if the mother of my son was granted a restraining order against me with no proof of anything that she claimed?

She was also granted temporary custody of our 17month old. I tried to appeal both custody and the restraining order but I was denied the right to appeal. The court representative said, “I could not appeal any of the orders, for the reason that we have a court date scheduled for next month”. I even tried to get an emergency court appointment since my son developt a breathing disorder over the Thanks giving weekend. She also keeps all physical and medical info from me to the point that even my son’s doctor refuses to give me any medical records. I took care of my son his all of his first year and he never had to be hospitalized like he has been now.

Given the unfortunate situation that you have now found yourself in I suggest that you consult immediately with a family law attorney to assist you in ascertaining what is the best course of action to deal with what seems to be a temporary restraining order against you. Assuming you are subject to a temporary restraining order then the hearing date coming up may eliminate what is in effect.
