The answer to your questions depends on several factors: 1. What state do you live? 2. Is the restraining order against your ex-spouse/significant other or your children? In California, for example, if you have a restraining order against the other parent of your children, you may still be able to contact the children. However, if the restraining order is against both, the other parent of your children and your children, then you should not have any sort of communication (including facebook and other social media platforms) with either.

Can your girlfriends mom have you arrested for seeing her daughter without a restraining order?

No, it's not possible to be arrested for seeing her. The only legal issues would be if she was underage and you were over age, and you had sex with her. Than your in more trouble. But to answer your question, no.Added: The questioner complicated the scenario by adding information about a "restraining order." Even if the daughter (who it is assumed is a minor) did not wish to have a restraining order issued against you, IF the parent DID, you must adhere to the provisions of the court order whether the daughter wished to have it issued or not. As a minor she has no legal say in the matter.
