Q: How do I (the “victim”) dissolve a Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence? So my bf can come home
My fiancé was arrested for domestic violence. I denied the right to press charges. At first hearing, the judge ordered a protection order where he cannot come home or be around me. How would I go about getting that dropped? We have been together 10 years and he has never been violent, it was a bad few months and he turned to a drug he never did before and was having a bad reaction to it and he is now clean and I would love to have him around. He presents no danger to me, and has never been in trouble before this current incident. I’m not pressing charges and I do not wish to have a protection order in place. So what steps do I take to get this removed so we can go back to normal life without worrying about him being arrested for contacting or seeing me? Thanks in advance!
