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.

Recent No Contact Order Questions

  • My ex-husband is an emotional terrorist and has been allowed

    My ex-husband is an emotional terrorist and has been allowed to GROSSLY manipulate the legal system.
    He is a physician and an atty and threatened to destroy me. Although we have been divorced for almost three years, he just took me back to court to comply with a VERY unfair marital settlement agreement that i was forced to sign because I was broke and did not have any more money to fight him.
    He filed FOUR bogus unsubstantiated DV charges against me (the judge just took his word for despite the fact that I had no contact with him, verbally, physically, email or phone. YET he has violated his own no contact order by more than 50 counts(via having patine faxes sent to my fax AND continues to have random mail sent to my home EVEN THOUGH HE NEVER HAD MAIL SENT TO THE HOUSE WHILE WE WERE MARRIED.
    He also represented me (very badly) in several collections cases and just walked away from his responsibilities.
    I have filed a complaint to the BAR assn and they did not find my complaint to have merit. I appealed and the supervisor sided with the first atty who rejected the case.
    These BOGUS DV charges have ruined my career as a forensic psychologist and I am destitute at this point.
    EVERYTHING i have tried to do (protect myself & complain) has backfired which makes for a dangerous situation because my ex is a psychopath and every "win" strokes his highly overinflated ego.
    How can I file contempt charges (for more that 50 counts of contempt) that he cannot escape and, based on what I have said, how can I file a suit against him for defamation of character & INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS?
    PLEASE help me.
