Dropping dvpo


Is it possible for a consent DVPO (not ordered by a judge) to be modified or dropped?

The custodial parent’s attorney required the noncustodial parent to sign the consent DVPO before allowing him to sign a consent custody order. Noncustodial parent is seeking increased & unsupervised time with the child, and would prefer limited contact with the custodial parent for purposes of custody mediation. The noncustodial parent is fine with prohibitions on contact not pertaining to the child, but the DVPO prevents any co-parenting at present.


Yes, it is possible to modify a consent DVPO. You will still need to present to the court why the DVPO should be modified and what the new contact parameters should be.
