A restraining order is just a piece of paper.

"I don't care what a judge says; I am her MOTHER!"

When it gets to the point where faking your own death is a serious consideration, it's past judicial orders.

As someone who lived 1500 miles away from their crazy mother a restraining order would do nothing. I can't even use my real name for online social medka, but she still finds me. I can't tell you how many phone numbers I've had to block. She'll randomly show up to my apartment or dad's house.... yeah a restraining order doesn't do much lol

Move away, different state and all. Change your number. If you are close to any family make sure they won't dish out the new number. Forget social media sites. At least that's what I did.

Restraining order, therapy, moving, don't do something as extreme as faking suicide. Imagine how that would make everyone else close to you feel. Sorry things are so bad for you Op.

Look for a job in the northern hemisphere. Don't tell her which continent, let alone country. Legally change your name, but don't tell any people you know back home. Get a new phone number and email. Get an extra email, under your old name, for friends and relatives, that you can easily throw away if she finds out. Good luck!

No. Restraining orders are for any victim of any kind of domestic violence by any former or present household member, regardless of relationship.
