A traffic ticket mailed in has this case type. The mailed portion does not have Endangering life or property checked. The fine itself is less than $200. Is this Misdemeanor charge more serious than speeding traffic ticket?
That means that the offense is a petty misdemeanor. It only carries a fine and not potential jail time. You do not have to appear in court. You can handle this administratively. But be aware that paying the fine is the equivalent of pleading guilty to the charge.

Or health of the child. What is included in this? Is asking who is gonna pick up my daughter or where someone will meet me to get her something that would be allowed to be asked or could I be arrested for that?
In my mind, discussing pick up and drop off would fall under discussing parenting time. But you certainly should not meet her or have any contact with her outside of the OFP. You should not argue with her. You should not even respond to contact that addresses issues outside of the OFP.
