Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Is this a criminal or civil protective order?
Generally, only the parties to the action have standing to report a violation --- but the third party could testify in court to validate/verify the a party's violation of the protective order.
Also, if the person who has the protective order doesn't care enough to report a violation to the court, the judge isn't likely to do anything about it.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
