Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help me. My boyfriend is currently in prison and has been sentenced to a few years. I am unable to contact him. I wanted to try and get the restraining order dropped / removed but wasn’t sure exactly how I should. Has anyone done this before and could advise what I can do.
Um, maybe boyfriend is the wrong way to describe him if there is a restraining order. Presumably you know who his lawyer is and they would be able to contact him. I would just be grateful he’s out of your life.
Honestly I would think about this for awhile before acting. What good would being in touch with him do for you? What harm could it do? Why do you feel the need to do this now? Think very carefully. Once you open Pandora’s box you cannot shut it again…..
If you issued it against him you can go down to the courthouse and request that it’s dropped. If it is issued against you, there is nothing you can do to have it removed. But general rule of thumb, if a relationship is at the point where restraining orders are being issues, it’s a toxic situation and you need to dump him and move on.
