Ok, one more thing to think about before stating your final answer...if I could prove my ex would have knowledge my daughter would have told me this whether he asked her to or not by way of multiple incidents where daughter has told me about his actions, comments so he should have known when he gave her this information she would get it to me, would that prove a violation of the order without having to involve my daughter in this more than he already has?
I found caselaw in Washington that dealt with a guy restrained contacting a person who lived with the protected person and making comments. He never told person he called to tell protected person, but given the person he called always did tell the protected person when he did that, the fact he continued to do so despite being aware she would tell the protected person showed he had knowledge protected person would be contacted about it and thus supported the violation. Would the same apply here?
