No, you can not get in trouble or violate the order, unless there is something to the contrary in the language of the order. The only who can violate the order is the person it is directed against.

I am nervous he will call the police for me contacting him
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You can not get into trouble for violating an order not directed against you.

Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You would not be violating any laws.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I've read online and heard he can file to get one put against me if I contact him
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

He would have to have a reason. If you are harassing him then he can, but merely making one or two no threatening phone calls is not harassment nor anything you should worry about.

What about if i was to text him ?
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

So long as you are not threatening or harassing him you may use any medium.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
