Ambyr Childers seeks restraining order against ex-husband Randall Emmett
Mar. 4, 2014
Mar. 4, 2014 – A Madison County Common Pleas Court judge has denied the former husband’s request for a restraining order in the divorce case between Amy Childers and her husband Randall Emmett.
The hearing began on Monday, March 1 in the Judge David R. Johnson courtroom in the county courthouse, 910 N. St. Charles St., Madison.

Emmett, Childers said, has “continually used abusive and threatening language toward me.”
Emmett, according to Childers’ petition for divorce, continued to “constantly harass” her on Facebook and social media, including sending emails, text messages, and direct messages to her cell phone, and “has harassed, threatened, and used other unlawful means to contact me and my family.”
Childers, in her petition for divorce, said she and Emmett began living apart in April 2011, and she left him last summer. Emmett had been living with his parents, according to the petition.
During the course of the divorce, Childers alleges Emmett has moved into her sister’s home in the past two years.
Childers said Emmett also has violated the restraining order and her rights under the First Amendment, the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, and the Ohio Constitution’s Freedom of Speech and Press.
She said Emmett “t
