Does anyone know if restraining orders affect being hired by airlines or causes issues entering Canada or the Bahamas?

Well...

Legally a restraining order is not any sort of conviction, arrest, or criminal charge. In a legal sense it is more of an abundance of caution, since there is little due process involved.

I've never heard of anyone being asked about a restraining order at an interview. It does not fall into the usual category of questions that employers may ask, and it may very well be illegal to ask depending on the state.

I would find out if restraining orders in the jurisdiction in question are a matter of public record and whether they can be easily found in a search of court records. If they can only be found by searching the name of the plaintiff, then it would be hard for anyone to learn that an order had been filed against a given restrainee.

But with all that said...what the &%*% dude!?!?! Whatever you did to earn a restraining order is NOT the sort of behavior that employers expect of pilots. You had better hope this doesn't wind up on social media...maybe best to close your FB account at this time.

A restraining order is a tactic used by divorce lawyers to get their client an advantage against the other spouse. An angry phone call could be all he did wrong, so I say we give him a chance to explain.

I knew a lady thinking about getting divorced. Her girly friends told her she should gin up a reason to get a restraining order on her husband, just to throw some dirt his way. In this case it never happened.

I'd do my best to avoid the receiving end of one though.

Very true that this come about as a divorce tactic. But if an airline finds out about they will probably not bother to ask your side, because they have no way of knowing who's telling the truth. They'll assume the worst and act accordingly.

Why is he obligated to explain? It was a simple question.

exactly what it was, a tactic during a divorce

Give the guy a break and give him the benefit of the doubt. Spouses and lawyers who use this tactic are the lowest life form and should be careful karma doesn't bite them in the ass down the road. My brother, who is the biggest mush alive, was served divorce papers accusing him of throwing heavy items at his witch with a "b" (I mean wife) and driving dangerously where she feared for her life (and that of their young son). It was all bull crap since she needed an excuse for a divorce. (I guess screwing our cousin wasn't a valid reason in the eyes of the court....)

This absolutely. Because there is so much competition, anything like the above will make it easy to go to the next app/resume in the pile.

In Canada, yes it will be a problem. The attitude here is basically, how do we know you haven't been convicted of a felony. A friend of mine, going through a divorce, had this happen to him every time he comes to Canada. He gets in, but the questioning is pretty long. He carries some paperwork, I can't remember what, from the judge that pretty much explains the circumstances.

From what I have seen from the islands, I can't see a problem. They only seem interested in clearing me if I am staying overnight, and even then, it is quite cursory.

I never recalled seeing that question on an any airline app. If they don't ask, don't tell.

If they wanted to know, they'd ask.

BTDT, with the BAM out of nowhere RO..

My ex wife, told a judge that I pushed her down a flight of stairs at home. Not a single stair in the house. Not even a step unless you stub your toe on a threshold.

And she got one. The threshold of getting one is really, REALLY low. Like in FL, a woman asks for it and get it.

It was just a ploy to get more money and use of the house during the divorce.
