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.

A bit of necroposting here, but just to get this on a Google Search, which is how I found this thread. (I am in no way an attorney, go get an attorney and maybe this post helps someone)

Protective Orders are reported to the FBI under its administration of the National Crime Information Center registry. Several laws require this reporting. Yes, the employer will know about the order if they look. Worse, Customs and Border enforcement is notified as is the FAA. The government agencies will look. Expect to meet a few extra Officers at your next border crossing.

There are specific codes for Ex-Parte (a legal term meaning the Order was granted on just one person's allegation with no hearing) Protective Orders. These are supposed to be updated to show the disposition of the Order. Here is the training the FBI receives (which also came up via a Google search):

TPOs are getting thrown around for any and everything these days. Too easy to get with zero accountability.

Slightly off topic and asking for a friend. But is it possible to obtain a restraining order intentionally from an entire state essentially being banned from entering said state. He wants to work 135 charter while being banned from NY, MA, NJ, FL, RI, CT, MD, and for some reason KS.

In Texas a Temporary Restraining Order is automatically ordered as soon as either party files for divorce. It'll make you feel like a criminal just reading it. Our courts are corrupt pits of hell that everyone should hope they never have to enter.
