My boyfriend went to trial for 2nd offense domestic violence (w/in 5 yrs) a few days ago. He is now spending 30 days in jail, and when he gets out he will then have 18 mos probation, and a no contact order was issued as well, concerning myself and our 2 young children. The victim being me, I understand the no contact,, however what about our two babies!?!? Can I waive this? I know he has anger management classes and AA classes he MUST attend after his release..is it possible after he is facilitated would the 18 mos be lessened? Our kids miss him so badly... I can't imagine our 1 1/2 being 3 when her dad is able to get back into her life. What should I do?? We live together, he was our sole income.. And I feel now with this 18 mos no contact, it's only going to hurt our kids.
