Good afternoon. No, it would not likely not be an issue. The reason why I say this is because if you are using public roadways to travel and need to pass by her home, there would be a justification for passing by. As you shared, you are not doing this to see her, harass, look etc but as a result of needing to go from point A to B. Of course, when you appear for the hearing on the order, you want to address this with the Judge, so it is on record that you live on the same street and would be reasonable that you have to pass by the home. I am inclined to believe the Judge at that time would advise you are not to stop or do anything to cause concern or to contact her,.
I am sorry for the delay. If there is case law, your attorney would need to search, since it is outside the scope of the site and costly. The goal, is to show that the route you go is the most direct and quickest and that there should be some leeway and understand if she were to report seeing your car drive by, which is odd since she would have to be actively looking since you were driving by so quickly. There would need to be a willful and knowing violation and if you could use map quest or another service to show the route and time and how much quicker it was, to justify your route, it could be a defense
They would need to show intent. I say this because lets say you were at location A and she showed up, by coincidence, she then could not just simply call the police and have you arrested, when you would.could be given a chance to leave.
