Is the the petitioner of a protection order allowed to contact and harass the respondent?

Q: An ex of mine has a protective order against my wife and she (my ex) has contacted my wife on two occasions since the protective order. My ex lives in Bronx, NY and my wife and I live in Connecticut.

A: David’s Answer: If there is no cross-order, then a petitioner may indeed contact the respondent. Obviously, they may not do so in a method which is deemed harassing, however. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment.
