My girlfriend and I stole $2000 from my mom by doing online

Customer Question

My girlfriend and I stole $2000 from my mom by doing online transfers to prepaid cards. My charges were dropped and I'm working with a Probation Officer on restitution. She is on House Arrest and our son is born in August. Do i have the right to be there for it? Or do no contact orders include birth? Will the no contact order be dropped when she starts probation? Lastly, if the courts didn't give us any no contact orders in paper, does that mean it isn't there?

You would need to obtain an order from the court to be there for the birth and without one you cannot have contact with her for any reason. The no contact order is not likely to be dropped until probation has ended and even if the court did not give you papers, if they told you to have no contact, you can have no contact. Go to your attorney and have them go to court to get permission for you to be there for the birth.
