Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
It depends on the actual wording of the order but generally when a protective order is obtained because of criminal behavior, as opposed to just an injunction a family law case, the order includes any communications of any kind even through a third party, mail, etc.
There's a 95%+ chance that this behavior violated the order.
I don't see that the second situation would be a violation since they were not trying to contact you in any way.
Probably so, although that is a personal choice. I believe that if you don't react immediately they just keep pushing the line.
You're very welcome!
Best wishes to you on this and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I’d suggest Excellent!) so I get credit for my work. The website only gives credit to the expert if you give a Positive Rating.
