Lift no contact order Florida domestic battery
Can I get the Florida domestic battery 784.03 no contact order lifted? I want to see my girlfriend, wife, kids, boyfriend, husband, etc. and I want to go back home.
People arrested for domestic battery may think: I want contact with the alleged victim but can’t because there is a no contact order in place. This is all a misunderstanding. I have kids. I can't see my kids either because of the no contact order on my domestic battery Florida Statute 784.03 criminal charge. Can that no contact order be lifted? I don’t want to go to jail for violating the no contact order. I want to go back to my home and not have to pay rent somewhere else (paying for two places).
What could happen if you don’t get the no contact order lifted? You may have to keep paying rent or a mortgage for a place you can’t live in. You will have to pay double rent essentially because you will have to live somewhere else. Over the timespan that the no contact order is in place, that will be many thousands of dollars you will have to spend. If you have kids, your relationship with them will be strained because you are not allowed to be in their lives. Depression may come. Feelings of helplessness and loss of hope may overwhelm you. If you end up having direct or indirect contact with the alleged victim or your kids, you will go to jail for violation of an injunction. You may be held no bond, meaning you will not get out jail anytime soon.
The good news is it is possible to get the no contact order lifted.
In short, a Florida domestic battery lawyer can help by:
Filing a motion to lift the no contact order, going to court and arguing the motion and preparing an order for the judge to sign. If granted, the no contact order would be modified to no harmful contact. That would allow you to have contact with the alleged victim, your kids and allow you to move back in the house.
