My mom was told by a detective, that I was to have no

Customer Question
Hi, my mom was...

Hi, my mom was told by a detective, that I was to have no contact with my daughter, I never got served any papers, and I personally, was never told or given any information, is that legal?

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

Idaho

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Slightly, they also said her mother is to have no contact as well, and she lives in Oregon, with nothing to do with it

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This is all over a child abuse case, but we don't know who called, or why, they talked to my daughter already

Sometimes, a complainant who's not sure whether he or she wants to have someone charged with a crime makes a complaint to the police. Instead of asking the police to get charges pressed, he or she asks the police to reach out and warn the offender to leave the complainant alone.

Is there an order in effect? No. So you couldn't be arrested for violating an order of any sort. However, you have been put on notice that you were to have no contact with your daughter. That means if you do contact her, she can have you charged with harassment since you've been told that your contact is not welcome.
