Yes, there are probation conditions on any grant of probation. I found a guide here: http://www.robinainstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/Iowa.pdf
As you suspect, there is no list of conditions by statute, but the court will impose reasonable conditions based on the offense. These will be contained in the minute orders at the time of sentencing. For instance, in a harassment case, at least one of the terms would likely be a no contact / stay away order. I would check with the court clerk to see what was ordered in this case.
I hope this helps. Best wishes to you.
I find it difficult to believe that a person is put on probation with no terms. How would that person know whether or not they had violated probation.
Having never heard of such a thing, I would contact the clerk of the court and inquire about the terms. At a minimum, it is implied to obey all laws.
I know this isn't super helpful, but the court must have imposed something.
Here is the easiest way to deal with this. You (or your attorney) need to put it back on calendar in the court for clarification of the probation terms. You can argue your side, and the court will impose the conditions it feels are appropriate.
That should do it.
