Dropping no contact order

Rep from victim services says that she can represent me in court and let them know my wishes of wanting the no contact order dropped at my discretion during his probation period. She said ultimately it is up to the judge but typically if those are my wishes judge will have no problem with that. I will not be appearing in court. Is this true?

Hello:

It is true that the decision of weather to remove a no contact order is ultimately up to the judge. Although courts generally respect a victim’s opinion or wishes, judges are not beholden to them. 

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss further. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182. 

Yours very truly,
