Someone Has An Order Of Protection Against You And Contacts You. Can You Respond?
In TN, if someone has an Order of Protection against you and they contact you, can you respond?
Even if the victim contacts you first, any response by you is a violation of the Order of Protection. If and when the Petitioner reports your response, you will be subject to immediate arrest and the full consequences for violating an Order of Protection. Unless you also have an Order of Protection against them, a victim with an Order of Protection against you can contact you. However, this type of behavior can be grounds for you to seek a modification or dissolution of the Order of Protection.
