Good afternoon, I'm Lea and I am going to assist you with this query.
What type of order was it - a non molestation order, or a child arrangements order?
If you have a copy of the order it may be easiest if you attach it.
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
What were the specific circumstances that lead to the father having no contact at all ordered?
How old are the children?
Were they subject to the abuse, or did they witness it?
My concern is that things have to be at a very extreme level before a complete no contact is ordered by the court - which would mean that the concerns were very high. If that is the case, then if you decide to get involved with him again, you are likely to be putting yourself and the child at risk...and someone is bound to inform social services who can then intervene and remove your child if this is deemed necessary.
I would like to see the actual court order before giving any further guidance, but just on the basis of what you have said, I would suggest that you do not re-start a relationship at this stage due to the potential risk to you and your child.
If you genuinely think you want to make a go of it, then you can apply to court to have the order varied.
You will apply on form C100 - cost is £215.
The court will decide what to do after assessing your new circumstances.
