Good morning,I'm not sure I fully understand your question but I do want to help you. You have an Order of Protection out against someone, is that correct? And you want to know what, specifically about it?
In other words, you're not supposed to visit your partner, because the Order of Protection forbids it? The police likely won't do anything if your partner is asking you to come over and you aren't afraid. If the Order is no longer necessary (you no longer want it) you should go to court to see about getting it dismissed.
So the partner has it against you, but they are wanting you to visit? Nothing legally prevents friends or neighbors from calling and reporting that you are there if they know about the OP and that you aren't supposed to be there - what I am saying is it is unlikely the police would do anything in this situation because the "victim", your partner, is asking you over and has no problem with you being there.It would be better, if your partner no longer wants the OP in place, for them to see about getting the Order voluntarily dismissed so that there are no more restrictions in place.
No one can guarantee that you wouldn't be arrested if someone calls the police. Whether the victim wants you there or not, it's a violation of the Order for you to be there, and you know that it is, and you're there intentionally. What I am saying is that it is unlikely because the victim will tell people they invited you over and want you there and are not afraid for you to be there, etc. However, that's not a promise of no arrest.The far better thing to do would be for your partner to go to court and see about having the Order voluntarily dismissed so its no longer a concern.
