Most restraining orders in effect do not permit any contact including phone contact
the only way to be able to do so is if the court vacates the order
which after 2 years it may well do so
especially if both sides consent to this
I hope that is fast, direct and helpful
Please let me clarify, the person who took out the restraining order against a person, they cannot make any contact including phone, to the person they put the restraining order against?
It is not illegal but not wise to do so
doing so can give grounds to lift the order
and may also provoke a response which then can be defended
It is best to treat the restraining order as reciprocal
if you want to keep it in place, and avoid the other side then seeking to violate it
