Brandenburg, KY asked in Domestic Violence for Kentucky

Q: What are chances of IPO violation being dropped when I was arrested the day before dismissal?

My fiancé was a DV victim for 15 years and after an argument where he was in top of me and I scratched his neck while getting him off of me, he left and went and filed an epo. At our hearing he chose to not drop the order. After court he realized that he had no business doing that and immediately filed for an amendment of the order. They set the court date over a month out, we live together and have 5 kids total. My children started school before second court date had occurred and my fiancé came to where I was staying with two of my children and begged me to come home stating I would be fine bc he had petitioned the court. The day before our hearing my kids were playing around on my phone called 911 and left an open line resulting in an officer coming to my house. I was arrested until the next day before court and now face criminal charges. Is there any grounds for dismissal in this case? IPO has been completely dismissed, I just am facing violation charges now..
