Protection Orders

questions & answers

Question: If I, the Plaintiff," contact the Defendant, who I have an Order of Protection against, am I in violation of that order?

Answer: Yes, technically a plaintiff may contact a defendant from an order of protection. However, a plaintiff received an order of protection from the court for a reason. If you no longer think the order of protection is necessary you may quash, stop, the order by going back to the court and asking for it to be removed. If you believe that the order is still necessary than it would be unwise to contact the defendant unless a sheriff is present.
