Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
You have probably worked this out already but the only way to avoid this is to not make reports to the police. If you do this again it will be worse next time as he could be remanded in custody.
When you say he cannot have contact for a month, do you mean he has been served a protective notice?
