The prosecutor or your husband's attorney.

You cannot write a letter to the judge. That would be improper ex-parte communication and it would be improper for your husband's attorney to suggest or discuss such a thing with you. Your husband's attorney is putting his license in jeopardy and should know better.

If you want the no contact order lifted, you need to contact the prosecuting attorney. The prosecuting attorney can make a motion with the court to amend the bond conditions, including lifting the no contact order.

Good luck and best wishes. I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
