My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Utah
My boyfriend and I were involved in an altercation over the weekend which led to him being arrested and charged with assault (domestic violence). I signed the jail release waiver for the no contact order, however in court the judge upheld a longer no contact order..Idk all the details of the judges order because I was only given a very small amount of information from the clerk. I was only told that his pre-trial for the no contact order will be in June, and that we are not allowed to contact eachother until then.
I am pregnant, it is his first child. I have a major health issues that make this a high risk pregnancy and I do not want him to be kept away from me, my home, or my children. He never hit me or harmed me intentionally. I did sustain a few injuries, one was from him trying to close a door that I had stuck my leg through and he didnt realize my leg was in the way, which I do not even have a bruise from. A scratch on my thumb which I had given myself before he and I even began arguing. And when he did realize my leg was in the way, he tried to help me get my leg out of the door way and I lost my footing and I fell and the side of my head hit a chair leg. I am not nor have I ever been afraid of him, he has never harmed me or laid a hand on me in anger, he has never injured me prior to my leg in the door. We were just arguing and it got loud and I left my apartment to go two doors down to a friends apartment to cool off and the police were called from us yelling at eachother.
I need help petitioning the court ordered no contact order, I do not want to go through this pregnancy without him. I trust him with my life, with my childrens lives, and with our unborn daughters safety while Im carrying her. This was an argument that was verbally loud and I dont know how to help him. This is a huge misunderstanding. Please, any advice on how to petition the court would be helpful!!
