if a lawyer handled the 1203 then that is the person to ask.
otherwise, you need to see up an appt with a criminal lawyer that handles cases in the court involved and have him look at minute order etc to check court ruling................but it sounds like it might be possible.
Angelina Bradley's answer The presumption in family law, once a finding of domestic violence has been made, is that the perpetrator of the domestic violence does not get legal or physical custody. FC 3044. On the facts you describe, odds are good he would not be awarded custody. He may be awarded visitation, but you have good arguments for why those should be supervised.
If you have a domestic violence restraining order in addition to the criminal protective order, you can file to extend it, and I recommend you...
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Is there a subpoena requiring the victim to testify? If so, violating a court order may be grounds for a contempt order. As for the no-contact order, it depends on the facts. Was the no-contact order issued to you for someone else's protection? More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/...
Andy Cook's answer You could get a civil restraining order, which is different from a domestic violence restraining order. The difference, among other things, is that you have to prove, by clear and convincing evidence, the facts that warrant a restraining order (as opposed to a family law restraining order, where the burden of proof is lower). Also, the restraining order, in your case, could last only three years, whereas a family law restraining order lasts up to five years.
you need to retain a lawyer in your area or hers to write a self-serving letter setting forth the facts..............maybe even contacting the police about what she is doing though it is best to have your lawyer do that so you do not say something that can bite you in the fanny latter.
are you in a position to hire a lawyer? if so, I will try to help you find one........................contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or 760 837 7500
