I have a protective order against my sons father and have had it since November of 2008. What would I need to do to get it dropped? He hasn't been trying to come around at all and has been obeying the order but before he was not. I want to see what will happen if I was to drop it whether he will come around and or if he will not even bother and what he will do if he was to even approach my son who he has yet to meet or myself. Mind you my son is 15 months old and his father has been out of the picture since I was 6 weeks pregnant due to an argument we got into that escalated into physical abuse that was out of anger while he was drunk. Someone please help me. Because I really would like to see if he has changed and if he is ready to own up to his responsibilities and do what he needs to do to help me raise osur son.
