My friend is in a situation where she discovered after getting pregnant everything about this guy is a lie.She fears what he may do or not do to her or the unborn baby.The police and courts for now will not do anything since he has not crossed enough as the call it lines with her and if they bother him it will violate his civil rights,she can't afford an attorney to help.He has a record for abuse,driving while drunk and some other issues.It has been suggested that she either get a restraining order which is only good if it gets enforced or she move out of the area and make him believe until the baby is born it died where she can go to family court and get something done,finally.She has been in hospital already for preterm and worry next time could really hurt her or baby.What would you do,advice ladies worried for her.Answer Question

She doesn't need to make him believe anything. She needs to get away from him. She can go to court and ask for a peace order.

OP, a peace order and a protective order are NOT the same thing. If she can't get a protective order (restraining order) she can get a peace order.
