ProSe Custody Hearing and DVPO


#1

My ex spouse currently has an active 50b DVPO against me and I am representing myself pro se at my child custody hearing. Will the 50b DVPO prevent me from questioning my ex while she is a witness during the hearing? Will I be in violation. Of the DVPO by questioning her in court while she is on the witness stand? Thank you for your help.

The DVPO does not prevent you from calling your wife as a witness in your custody action. I would notify the deputy in the court room when you arrive that there is a DVPO in place and that your contact with her will be limited to the purposes of the hearing.
