What exactly is a no negative contact order
3 attorney answers
Typically "no negative contact" means exactly what it states. The restrained person can be near the protected party(ies) so long as nothing negative occurs during this contact. One judge in San Diego refers to the protected party(ies) in this instance as "informal probation officers" because it is their decision whether to report contact as "negative."
I knew one judge who called it a "nice as pie" order.
From the official restraining order form, it means he "may not harass, strike, assault (sexually or otherwise), follow, stalk, annoy, destroy or damage personal or real property, disturb the peace, keep under surveillance, or block the movements" of the protected person.
However, there might be other restrictions on his release from custody.
Talk to Junior's attorney before you let him back into the house, just to make sure there isn't something that will get him in trouble.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney. Free consultation only applies to potential clients with a criminal case within 100 miles of Chico, California.
Probably, but were you the protected parties? Why don't you have a copy of the order?? Speak to his lawyer.
