As far as DCF goes, they will conduct their own investigation. IN Polk County, your boyfriend could get a bond hearing to modify his bond/pre-trial release usually within 3 days, as they run a good docket over there. If you show up and testify that you want contact, and there is no strong objection from the state, the no contact provision will likely be removed. Otherwise, once the case is dropped (assuming that it will be once you complete the DV class) the non contact order will go away.
If your guy hires a lawyer, that lawyer can file a motion to modify the no contact order. You should not contact him so an alternative would be to hire a lawyer who can contact the defendant and see if he hired a lawyer and if so to reach out to that lawyer and let him or her know your wishes. Regarding DCF, that is a difficult question as they don't want to see kids with Spouse abusers. Perhaps he is not but DCF takes hard line stance on these cases.
Please be advised that answering your questions does not establish an attorney-client relationship with myself or my firm. We would be more than happy to set up a free consultation if you call us at 407-228-3838 and specifically mention AVVO or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put AVVO in the subject line.
Hire an attorney for him. You could appear at the next hearing and try to ask the judge to change the no contact to no violent contact.
