No Contact Order Questions

A No Contact Order is a court order that prevents a person from having any contact with the person who filed the No Contact Order. This includes any interaction through phone, internet, written messages, or through another person. No Contact Orders are commonly filed in domestic abuse situations, family law affairs, and other situations where a person fears for their safety. In most states, the individual filing the No Contact Order needs to approach the court and file a temporary order. The court will then proceed to have an evidentiary hearing to decide whether the No Contact Order needs to be made permanent. Many times when a person is faced with dealing with a No Contact Order, there are questions that need answered and are case specific. Read below where Experts answer a variety of questions regarding No Contact Orders.
