What is epo?
From what I gathered, Emergency Protection Order, but I could be wrong.
Also, I thought you go through the courts for something like that? You just don't call up police for a PO, its all through court.
When I asked an officer if there was any way I could file for a restraining order/protection order he said I'd have to go through the court...I forget which office I was supposed to go through. I ended up not filing because I needed more evidence...
However she could have asked for the police escort to set herself up for an emergency protection order so when she walks into court she could say I had to do x,y,z and here is the police report to prove it. That could have enough proof for an EPO for however many months until actual court where they review all the evidance, witnesses ect. (at least this is how I understood it)
However if you want to go for full custody when you go into court for the EPO hearing it is not the same court as family/domestic court. This is not when you want to bring up gaining full custody as these judges are not the same ones who decide what's best for the child. You'll need to file for full custody through family/domestic court and have a judge review everything there. You'll want to get the EPO taen care of first then file and gather as much evidance as possible, notes from drs about the child's mental health, what interventions he needs, medications, ect. A judge will review your evidance, witnesses, history, ect then decide what is best.
