Question: Can he still pick up my kids from school even tho I have a protective order

Answer: F. If the court finds that a parent has committed an act of domestic violence, that parent has the burden of proving to the court's satisfaction that parenting time will not endanger the child or significantly impair the child's emotional development. If the parent meets this burden to the court's satisfaction, the court shall place conditions on parenting time that best protect the child and the other parent from further harm. The court may: 1. Order that an exchange of the child must occur in a protected setting as specified by the court. 2. Order that an agency specified by the court must supervise parenting time. If the court allows a family or household member to supervise parenting time, the court shall establish conditions that this person must follow during parenting time. 3. Order the parent who committed the act of domestic violence to attend and complete, to the court's satisfaction, a program of intervention for perpetrators of domestic violence and any other counseling the court orders. 4. Order the parent who committed the act of domestic violence to abstain from possessing or consuming alcohol or controlled substances during parenting time and for twenty-four hours before parenting time. 5. Order the parent who committed the act of domestic violence to pay a fee for the costs of supervised parenting time. 6. Prohibit overnight parenting time. 7. Require a bond from the parent who committed the act of domestic violence for the child's safe return. 8. Order that the address of the child and the other parent remain confidential. 9. Impose any other condition that the court determines is necessary to protect the child, the other parent and any other family or household member.
