Good morning. Can you share with me why you can not have contact with this person? What are they on probation for? I am just trying to get an idea of what is at issue?
Allow me a minute to respond.
The situation seems VERY odd. The reason why I say this is because him PO can not tell him who he can and can not date or speak to, based upon what they feel could be an unhealthy relationship. They could only get involved and violate him if there was a condition or restriction on him, which prevented him from speaking with or having contact with a person of that type. By that, I mean if you were a convicted felon or on probation yourself, a condition may be that he not have contact with someone who has that label. Another example may be the issue with having minor children and him not being allowed minors because of his past. However, simply talking to you may not be enough and even seeing you, without the kids, may not be a violation either. Unless he is restricted to a certain area as well, I can not see how having any type of relationship with you is a violation. What he needs to do is ask his PO, if he does not already know, of the terms and conditions of his supervision and look specifically if there is something general within, that prevents him from talking or seeing you. If not, then the matter may need to be escalated to a supervisor, so they can see if his PO is abusing their power and acting outside the scope of their employment or go back to the Judge and get a court order.
Thank you for the reply. You should not be speaking with his PO and they have no legal obligation to speak with you. He can and should speak with them to get a better understanding of the situation. There is no reason that he should have been placed on tighter restrictions, unless there was a basis for it and I am inclined to believe that something else may have happened which caused this. As I shared, his PO can not tell him he can not speak or see a specific person, unless there is something about them in general, which is not allow under his probation. That is why he needs to know and/or be told, why they did this and how they even knew who you were or anything about you.

It is on him to look into this. I 100% understand how you feel and you do not want to do anything to get him in trouble. He needs to be the one who addresses this with his PO, if he desires. You shared that you found out through his family, so you may want to simply express your concern and ideas to them, in passing, about what he may want to do and look into, to see if he is actually doing anything wrong.
If you needed to speak on the phone, you can accept. If not, we can continue on this page.
Hi, are you still with me?
