If a minor and her adult boyfriend got into trouble and her boyfriend got charged with interference w/ minor, or statutory rape, and a no contact order was placed, does that indicate that the no contact order would no longer apply when the minor reached the age of consent, or would the minor have to go to court when they are a legal adult to attempt to get the order lifted instead of it no longer applying since the minor reached the legal age of consent?
It depends on when and where the no contact order was issued and what the posture of the case is now.
Usually no contact orders are conditions of bond or probation. I that is the case then the orders exist until either the bond is discharged or the probation ends, at which time court loses jurisdiction to enforce the order and so it too expires.
But no contact orders can also be civil, in which case the expiration date is set by the issuing Judge.
I would check with the clerk of court.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
The age of the child does not matter. Rather it is the terms of the no-contact order. If the no contact was a condition of the boyfriend's probation it ends when the probation ends. If the no-contact if the result of an injunction it ends when the injunction ends.
