Protection Orders

questions & answers

Question: My boyfriend's ex has a restraining order against him. She is constantly contacting me only to get information on him. Is she violating her own restraining order by contacting me just to find out about him?

Answer: No. An Order of Protection is requested by a person needing protection. If ordered by a judge, the Order of Protection only stops the defendant (boyfriend) from contacting the person requesting the order (the ex).
