    Answered . It is not up to you to order the lifting of a no contact order. The no contact order goes along with the domestic battery charge. You might request a modification, allowing your boyfriend back into the home, but there is no guarantee that will happen. Perhaps the prosecution will consider a modification of the no contact order if you temporarily move out yourself if your boyfriend is prohibited from entering the home. It is unclear how this is affecting you financially since your boyfriend should still be able to go to work and pay bills.

    All your questions should be asked of your boyfriend's attorney.

    Answered . Legal complications do not arise in vacuum. Without a probable cause or complaining witness your boyfriend could not be criminally charged with domestic battery, especially when you cite "he didn’t even do anything wrong we got into an argument while we were drinking." That qualifies as probable cause.
    Also, you seem to be misled. It is not the Attorney General's Office that handles such cases; it is the prosecutors in that particular county.
    Your boyfriend needs a criminal defense attorney to complete this matter as efficiently as possible in the court room, not on a public forum where such case could never be adjudicated.
