Can I get into trouble for contacting my husband when I have a protective order against him?
I have protective order on him since August 2018. I’m going back home so that we can try to make our marriage work. Will I get in trouble with the Court if I do this since I’m the one who has a protective order against him?
You cannot get in trouble — but he could get in trouble.
The Order is against him, not you. So, if he has contact with you, he is trusting you not to file charges against him. On the other hand, you are trusting him not to abuse you again. Your safety is most important so I hope that he got help to address his anger and hurt. If not, statistically speaking he will do it again and very soon: I hope that does not happen.
You could file a Motion to Rescind the Protective Order and if I was his attorney, I’d insist on that.
