Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
Your lawyer is correct. Any kind of attempted contact would be considered a violation of the protective order. You are required to leave the complainant completely alone.
As the underlying case was dismissed, however, I am confused as to why you would say that they are being forced to press charges. Are their new charges being pressed?
The complainant can go to the prosecutor and ask that the protective order be lifted, or that it be limited to allow you some contact. That has to be something that she wants to do, however. Any attempt on your part to contact her to try to get her to lift the order will be seen as another violation of the PFA and of your probation and will likely land you back in jail. Your lawyer may be able to negotiate something on your behalf in that regard.
