Asked in Domestic Violence for Mississippi

Q: I pressed charges on husband: Domestic violence/aggrivated assault. I was not aware of the no contact law that follows

I was not informed of this order until his mom told me. He was released from jail 3 days after he went to jail. I kept calling the jail he was in, trying to see when his court date was going to be and got the run around. Im his wife, so why am I in the dark? His mom attended and didn’t even tell me anything. No results or decisions. how do I find out for myself? Because she also told me about the no contact ordered between her son and I. I can’t trust his mom, and no one else has contacted me about anything relating to the case. Why is she the only way I can get any type of info to or from my husband? She deliberately lies and hides things from me. I have never experienced this before so I don’t know where to start. We have two young kids and this is hard. All i wanted was for my husband to get some help and learn his lesson for drinking and choking me while under the influence.
