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.

In Florida how can a No Contact Order to a No Violence Contact be changed?

In order to change a No Contact Order in Florida, a motion will need to be filed with the court. A person may file a petition with the court by themselves or enlist the help of a Law Expert. Many times due to changing circumstances, a No Contact Order maybe changed to accommodate the situation.

? If a No Contact Order is filed in MN, and the person filing the order contacts the person receiving the order, can legal action commence?

It is not against a law for the filing party to contact the receiving party of a No Contact Order. However, if the court/Judge feels that the order was placed with malice intent, the court/Judge may lift and remove the order. As always once a No Contact Order is in place, it is best to contact the receiver through legal counsel.

How can a No Contact Order be dropped in Iowa?

If the contact order filed was due to domestic violence, the court may probably deny the request to vacate the order. If there was no domestic violence a person can usually proceed to file a motion to vacate the order but will need to provide the court with sufficient evidence for vacating the No Contact Order like reconciliation or working out issues with both parties involved.

In Tennessee what is the distance a person needs to stay away from a child if a contact order is filed against him/ her and what would constitute as a violation of the contact order?

A No Contact Order means that the person should have absolutely no contact with the child. If the person shows up in places that are frequented by the child, it could be considered as a probable violation. If you feel the No Contact Order has been violated, you can approach the clerk of the court’s office and inform the clerk that you want to file a contempt charge. He/she will help you with the paperwork. If the No Contact Order is violated again, you can call 911 and have the person arrested.

The CPS does however have to serve the party with a copy of the protective order. A No Contact Order violation can result in hefty fines and immediate arrest. If you have a No Contact Order filed against you and you need to talk to the aggrieved person you need to approach the police, the prosecutor, or a lawyer to help mediate. . No Contact Order Many times, having or filing a No Contact Order may become confusing especially when a person does not know the rights and law that surrounds the order.

Recent No Contact Order Questions

  • a friend is being accused of inappropriate behavior with step daughter

    a friend is being accused of inappropriate behavior with step daughter as part of divorce and has temporary no contact order that affected him keeping his security clearance and stopped him from getting a good job. Today it was extended a month. If made permanent he will loose the lesser job he has now and he isn't only worried about that because they are accusing him of indecent liberties. He has a five year old daughter with his wife of 4 years and she has two teenage daughters, only one is making accusations. He was the disciplinarian and stricter parent.... often fought with wife.... no violence she kicked him out of house a lot. He has a lawyer, but could not afford one who shows up. Hasn't seen his daughter in awhile. They have him frightened. I know for a fact he likes older women not young girls : ). I think the big issue is going to be with custody, but I'd like to get an from a lawyer so he is reassured.
  • I am now divorced and remarried my ex husband is cyber stalking

    I am now divorced and remarried my ex husband is cyber stalking and harrassing me and my family. He was obsessive and angry often and had alcohol issues and suicidal ideation and even held me hostage in our own home at one point (i left him the next day). I agreed to accepted all the debt in the divorce and pay all court fees just to get away from him. I also pay almost 8k in support while we were separted. we both agreed to no alimony after the divorce. A few months later i meet someone else (who i am now married to and happy), was cheating at the time but was legally separted and living in different states. I would like a MPO ( im army) and a restraining order against him for me and my family. but if i get a restraining order will it back fire becasue i moved on (cheated) before the divorce was finalized?
