If someone is subject to a Protection from Abuse order, even if it is a temporary order, they can be charged and convicted of indirect criminal contempt for violating it, even if there is no Final Order entered.

Not sure if you posted this question earlier. A PFA is a civil remedy. The factual grounds surrounding the entry of a PFA are sometimes independent grounds to allege a violation of probation or parole. Even if you voluntarily drop the PFA, the facts alleged might still be a violation of probation in which case a Gagnon hearing will need to be held to determine the rights of the detainee.

Not necessarily. Probation is due to a criminal action. Your PFA is civil. Depending on what triggered the probation violation may decide whether probation is dropped. Just because the PFA was terminated does not necessarily mean probation will be dropped. He should speak with his probation officer concerning the matter. Good luck!
