Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered

Q. Can victim show up at defendants residence with a no contact order in place?
A: The answer to the first question (can victim show up at defendants residence with a no contact order in place?), is yes. A victim, or individual protected by a "no contact order", Order of Protection, or similar Court Order, has no restraints on his or her liberty beyond that of a normal citizen. He or she can go wherever they please. The victim showing up at a place where the defendant is located is not impermissible on her part. It is also, likely, not a violation of the order on the part of the defendant since he didn't instigate the situation. The best thing you can do is meet with a compassionate attorney who has experience with domestic violence, Orders of Protection, etc. I handle these kinds of cases on an almost daily basis in Davidson County. Seek out someone with experience in your area.
