| | Re: My wife had an affair, I broke a phone and got servered a 2 year protective order
If this is Texas you need a better lawyer as just throwing a phone down is so much less than what I have seen from experience.
I have seen a 6 mos restraining order given for severely beating the wife, damaging the home, destroying all phones including the wifes cell phone and computers and purposely totalling a car. It is possible that could have escalated further once it went to court but I am throwing the challenge flag here and just say that either there is more to this or you had a bad lawyer. There has to be additional history. While smashing your own phone can be a display of uncontrolled anger it can also be your right to smash your phone if you want.
