  • Order of protection in TN, has it been violated

    I have an order of protection against my ex-fiance'. He's now posted info about the situation that led to that order on his blog. I just need to know if this violates the no contact order or not, and if I need to get a lawyer.

    The order states that "the respondent has committed against the Petitioner the following: 1. Domestic Abuse in that Respondent committed the acts alleged in the Petition, the court hereby adopting the alleged acts as findings of fact and incorporating the same by reference; OR committed the following acts: (written in by judge) Stalking, online harrassment. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AS FOLLOWS: That the respondent shall not commit domestic abuse, stalking or sexual assault or threaten to commit domestic abuse, stalking, or sexual assault against the petitioner or the petitioner's minor child(ren); or use or threaten physical force that would reasonably be expected to cause bodily injury. The respondent is hereby ordered to refrain from telephoning, contacting, or otherwise communicating with the petitioner, directly or indirectly, or coming about petitioner, or petitioner's residence or place of employment for any purpose.

    Someone please help. I'm going out of my mind. I cannot even grieve for my brother for having to continually deal with this insanity. He just won't leave me alone, is still posting things about me on his blog, and as a struggling single mom, my finances are severely limited, so it's going to be next to impossible for me to afford an attorney. What can I do?

    Well....did he forward or e-mail you the iformation on his blog, or did you log on and read it? Were there actual threats made to you or your children?

      You should consult the police and make them aware of the posting. Blogs online are likely considered public, so unless there was a specific email to you, then it does not sound like a violation. But you were reading his blog for whatever the reason, so maybe he posted there knowing you would read it or maybe he was getting his side of things out too. hard to say?

        It sounds to me like he is violating the order by online harassment. talk to the D.A. and see what he says.
