If the restraining order is in place, you can and should not reply. Block them and do not let them into your home--you are always liable until they remove the restraining order.

Can you visit someone in jail that you have a restraining order against them?

No. The jail may not know about the restraining order or try to stop you. But if you have a restraining order against someone, you are also not to make contact with them, as you make it impossible for them to then follow the order. Most courts will find that you invalidate the restraining order if you contact the restrained person, and will then refuse to enforce the order against that person.

You can file for it, but you have to convince a judge to agree with you.

But if you simply want to file a restraining order against them just because they filed one against you, you won't convince the judge.

Can an individual file a restraining order against a judge?

not sure if you mean whether or not you can file a restraining order against any judge or a judge you are dealing with in a case. the latter may present some problems whereas the former may be considered a person like anyone else not immune from the application of a restraining order if necessary. To be clear, a restraining order order is a Court order against an individual, which prevents them from having any sort of contact with another individual. You need to have a legitimate reason why you are requesting the restraining order. There are different types of restraining orders but they are typically applied when an individual feels that they are being threatened, stalked, or abused by another so keep that in mind.

Can you be married to a person if you have a restraining order against them for making threats against you and your loved ones in the past?

If you have a restraining order on someone, it is voided as soon as you let them near you. If you meant can you marry someone after you put the restraining order on them. Yes, that's up to you. A restraining order means no proximity or contact of any kind between you two. How would you marry him, unless the restraining order is lifted? A restraining order IS NOT automatically lifted when you allow the restrained person near you. I hate BAD legal advice!! Only a court can lift or remove the Order. It depends on the state issuing the restraining order. The state I live in if the person who obtains the order violates it themselves the order becomes null once the person who the order is against informs the court of the contact. Also, if the person has allowed the order themselves to be violated, by allowing contact from the restrained person, again the order becomes null once the court is contacted. What good is a restraining order in these cases? Just another way for the abuser to keep control; as I see it. It is entirely up to you to stay married to this person. From first hand experience, the order is not null and void. If the person holding the order decides to file charges, the other could get charged with Interfering with Judicial Proceedings. It does not matter if the contact was consented. The fact remains that an order by the court was not followed and therefore prosecutable. I found out the hard way. My N abuser filed an order to worm his way out of assault charges. What I thought was a positive step for a healthy relationship, going to counceling, was just his way of a payback for having him arrested when he hit me. The only way to protect the person whom the order is against is to go to court and have the judge lift said order.
