shared paranting

Dear Attorneys,


My ex-wife and I have previously had some domestic violence issues and now have reciprocal restraining orders against each other. However, our kids are young and we get along better now and have decided to share some of their special events together (kindergarten graduation, birthday parties/dinners, etc.).  Is this a violation of the restraining order?




Tired of TROs


Dear Tired,


Any violation of a restraining order is still a violation, whether or not you agree to be around each other. If you no longer believe that your restraining order(s) are necessary, then you should consult with an attorney about modifying the restraining order. You can do so by agreement and avoid a hearing, but that way you are both protected and not risking any criminal exposure.
