My boyfriend got charged with child abuse. And is going to serve 34 months in prison. Our county judge will not lift the no contact order between us. It has nothing to do with me. No one in my home feels harmed or threatened. My boyfriend and I have alot to discuss before he gets sent to prison. We are pretty much common law and have alot of financial stuff to talk about and get taken care of. Him and I have nothing against each other. Never have had domestic violence charges or anything.
If it is a no contact ordered as part of a protection from abuse your lawyer should be able to go back to court and get the judge to lift it. Same answer if it was issued as part of a divorce or child custody case. If it was issued as a condition of probation his lawyer would have to go to the judge to get it amended. But since he is in prison that should not be the case. If it was issued as part of his prison sentence I think the judge may have exceeded his authority, but again his lawyer will have to take it up with the judge. If the judge refuses to amend the order in that case your boyfriend could file an appeal and ask the Kansas Court of Appeals to address the issue.
This answer is intended to provide general information about the justice system. It does not provide legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. It does not provide the basis for making decisions about a course of action. Legal advice requires more communication and information than is possible in this format. Many important considerations and factors need to be investigated and discussed before an attorney could give legal advice about this issue. Before making any decisions about a course of action readers are strongly encouraged to contact a lawyer and secure an attorney-client relationship. Readers must also understand that this format does not provide for confidential communication.
