I have a permanent injunction for Domestic Violence against my daughter's biological father that was granted in 07' we had a custody case in 08' that resulted in him being ordered to pay child support which he never did, set up approved 2 supervised visitation sessions with a councilor which he also never did. The magistrate's final judgement said visitation shall not occur if this is not done and her father was allowed to email me only for the purpose of visitation. He hasn't seen my daughter since she was 22 months old and was living in another state at the time of the hearing and still is. How is he allowed to repeatedly call me, harassing my family, calling my clients and posting threatening messages on Facebook with photos of my daughter legally? Also, how could he be allowed to leave the state without notice and how could visitation occur? He's threatened my this weekend over the phone with my life and stated he's taking my back to court. What could he possibly get from taking me to court? Could he get visitation? My daughter doesn't know him and says she doesn't want to. I've been married since she was 4 so my husband is the father she's known. I'm very scared.
Your question doesn't state if the injunction is for both you and your daughter or just your daughter. Either way, it appears from you question that he has violated the injunction (having not seen it I cannot be sure) by contacting you, harassing you, threatening you, and leaving the jurisdiction of the court. I would recommend that you contact the domestic violence coordinator where you live and ask them to file a motion stating that he has violated the injunction as well as contacting your local state attorney's office.
