An Order of Protection forbids actions by the abuser only. The order does not forbid you from contacting the abuser. But, such contact may be harmful to you.
For example, if the judge learns you have been contacting the abuser, this may affect his or her decision to give you a longer Order of Protection or extend the time period of your current order. The judge may have concerns about your reasons for getting the order and whether you really need the court's protection.
