My daughter was granted a year long protection order against her husband in the state of Virginia.
It was not a *no contact order*, since they have a child together and the judge made my daughter give her husband her new phone number,
so he could call about his daughter.
As soon as the order was issued her husband went to rehab, where he stayed for 3 months.
When he came out she let him move back home. He fell off the wagon, started using again and
last week he hit her.
She called the police and he is now sitting in jail.
When they go to court over this assault, my daughter is worried about what is going to happen to her because she violated the PO and let him come home.
Will she be charged with something?
Is she facing possible jail time?
Will a judge be willing to issue her a new protection order? ( the current one expires at the end of this month)
Will a judge understand she was trying to put her family back together and thought her husband was too, since he willingly went to rehab?
Thank you for any help
