I'm sorry to hear this.

This type of order expires in one year, but can be renewed if she files a petition to extend it, see

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

What is the difference between a protective order and a final judgement of injunction for protection against domestic violence? My attorney said that in my case that it does not have a duration of one year and is permanent. I have the final judgement of injunction for protection against domestic violence.

Expert:  N Cal Attorney replied 1 year ago.
Your attorney is probably correct. The statute states:
(c) The terms of an injunction restraining the respondent under subparagraph (a)1. or ordering other relief for the protection of the victim under subparagraph (a)7. shall remain in effect until modified or dissolved. Either party may move at any time to modify or dissolve the injunction. No specific allegations are required. Such relief may be granted in addition to other civil or criminal remedies.

A protective order is usually considered a temporary remedy and a final judgment is considered a permanent remedy.

I'm sorry that the statute is so long and confusing. Does this make my answer any clearer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes. Thank you. This is just difficult as my ex-wife has this on me and I want to contact her to show her I've changed but I cannot go to jail again.

Expert:  N Cal Attorney replied 1 year ago.
You are not allowed to contact her if the judgment includes a no contact provision. You can file a motion to dissolve the injunction based on changed circumstances, but you cannot otherwise contact her.

I am sorry the government is so paternalistic that it presumes to know what is best for you.
