When a divorce proceeding degenerates to this, it can be a sign that things have turned nasty, and the courts tend to find both parties “equally” to blame. If the conflict gets too "hot," in reality or by allegation, the court may enter some form of “no contact” order.
In the State of Washington, there are different types of orders designed to prevent contact between two people…even if those people have lived under the same roof for years. This can take on many and varied meanings of “contact”.
In this day and age prohibited contact can include texting, emailing, Facebook, even the old-fashioned three-way communication where you have someone speak to another person on your behalf. People are accustomed to referring all orders preventing contact as “restraining orders”. The type of order and who issues it will more specifically determine the restraints.
Next time, we will examine these different types of orders and their meaning. For now, if you are served with court papers don’t dread making that call to a lawyer.
