Bartlesville, OK asked in Criminal Law and Domestic Violence for Oklahoma

Q: If a child's name is listed as a minor family member on protection order does does no contact apply to child as well?

A protection order has a blank line for petitioner's name and under it says "and on or behalf of minor family members". To the right it says list additional minor family members:

Child's name is listed on the right. But not on the left under "on behalf of". On OSCN.net i've seen that show petitioner's name and on behalf minor petitioner then child's name. To include a order be granted on behalf of child It has to be transferred to any pending custody case if the defendant is a bio parent. That wasn't done and even though not allowed to have unsupervised visits with child it was ordered on the protection order for petitioner to call defendant once a week to allow speaking with minor child. So if petitioner claims that while at courthouse for a hearing the defendant called out the child's name would that be a violation even if child was a minor petitioner. Is there probable cause that a protection order has been violated

A: If the child is included on the ORDER and the order does not specifically allow contact, then yes, the no contact order applies to the child.
