The Restrained party filed a Motion to Modify a PPO to a No Contact Order Dismissing PPO order was granted. The No Contact does not identify the protected nor the restrained party. Furthermore, since then, the restrained party has made numerous contempt's with contact not regarding children and sending unwanted sexually exploited photo. When reporting, it was discovered that No Contact is NOT on the registry, only the dismissed PPO. Thus, Police are not willing to enforce the No Contact.
I am not sure what happened here, if you had a valid PPO, it is required that you receive notice of any attempt to modify or dismiss the PPO. You would have to go to the court and pull the registry of actions to find out what happened to the PPO, that is a great starting point. If somehow, the PO was inadvertently dismissed or discharged you may have some legal challenges to get it reinstated best to consult with an attorney.
This is one of those questions which cannot be answered without actually seeing the complete court file in this matter.
www.karlgeil.com. This answer is provided as general information about a legal issue, is not legal advice specific to a particular case, and does not create a lawyer-client relationship with the person asking the question.
None of us can really tell you what happened without reviewing the court file. What I can tell you is that the major difference between a PPO and an NCO is that violation of a PPO is a criminal offense under Colorado law and violation of an NCO is remedied with a contempt proceeding. If someone is harassing you, contact the police.
Best of luck.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
