The actions the Order of Protection prohibit include any contact, even if you feel its nice, friendly, or apologetic. As an example, if the person texts you “I’m sorry, I hope we will be ok.” And you respond, “I’m sorry too,” you have committed a crime. Remember, the order is not against them, so they have committed no crime. That may sound harsh or unfair, but it is an order from the court that you must comply with. Any attempt by the protected person to contact you in any form, should be documented and ignored. Violation of a court order is a very serious crime. Even if you want to make up, you cannot have any contact with the other person until the Order of Protection is amended or lifted.
