questions & answers

Question: I have a PFA against me and there is a third party rule for no contact. If I called the plaintiffs father not to relay a message to the plaintiff but about something else is that a violation of a third party contact?

Answer: The following is provided for general information only and should not be taken to constitute legal advice. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. The wording of the order of protection or injunction against harrassment is important in determining whether this sort of contact is permissible. Generally one who has an order of protection against them is prohibited from contacting a third party in order to harass the holder of the order. Whether contacting a third party about a completely unrelated matter is a violation will largely depend on whether the order requires no contact with that specific third party.
