Contact the Domestic Relations Court office that has jurisdiction over the CPO. You should be able to find out how to voluntarily dismiss the CPO. Contact a local criminal defense attorney regarding the criminal charge. Prosecutors often do not agree to dismiss criminal charges after the charges are filed. A local criminal defense attorney may be able to help the father and you, the prosecuting witness.
