Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Yes, you can get into trouble if you talk to your husband when there's a no contact order - you can actually go to jail, because violation of a no contact order is a crime. That means that, if he calls you, you should not answer. If you don't recognize the number, when you realize it's him, put the phone down. He won't go to jail for calling you, but you can go to jail for talking to him, even if he is the one who initiates contact (I realize that seems ridiculous). You can't even contact him through an intermediary.

If he wants to be able to talk to you, then he should go to the court and ask to have the order removed.

Good luck.

what should I do if I have already had contact but did not realize that I could be penalized?
Criminal Lawyer: Lucy, Esq., Lawyer replied 6 years ago
Nothing. The most important thing at this point is not to contact him any more. You can't undo what's been done, but there's no need to draw attention to it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
