    To answer the first question posed in the title of your post, you will not "get in trouble" for calling your husband while a TRO was in effect.

In case your husband was served with the TRO, any contact your husband made with you would constitute a violation of a court order. However, if he was not served with the TRO and the FRO, it is highly unlikely that he will be charged with a violation of the restraining order. If your husband...

    A restraining order can only be dismissed by the court that issued it. Therefore, you must file a motion to dismiss the restraining order against your fiance with the court that originally issued the Final Restraining Order.
