Q: My husband has issues with rage. I had an order of protection put in place as a stay away because I didn't know how we would react (nor did I fully understand that this could go on for months/years). I want to talk to him and try and move forward in life. I have 2 kids who are also on the order. I do not believe my kids are in danger any more. I no longer feel in danger. How do I get this changed/dropped if he can prove he is taking the right actions? I don't want to risk my kids being taken away.
Q: A stay away was put in place. We can only text and talk about the kids via phone. Is it OK for a friend to share info with me about the actions my husband is taking to seek help and get better?
A: The answer is yes - if the order of protection is in your favor, there's no reason why you can't communicate with your husband. The order would only bar him from communicating with you. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment.
