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.

What restraining order? Does he have one against you, or do you have one against him?February 2, 2020 at 9:49 pm #874190anonymousseMember
Contact a lawyer?February 3, 2020 at 2:38 am #874201TuiMember
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.February 3, 2020 at 4:54 pm #874297Minnie.YvonneParticipant
Who issued the restraining order?February 4, 2020 at 5:50 pm #874429dirtorsoilGuest
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…..February 4, 2020 at 6:31 pm #874432BittergaymarkGuest
For the love of God — NO! Just walk away. I will now wait for the update where you reveal you are pregnant and THINK the child is his…🙄February 6, 2020 at 2:05 pm #874626PDX816Guest
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.
