First, you must attend the Domestic Abuse meeting at the Linn County Attorney’s Office scheduled for you by law enforcement. If the charge is a simple misdemeanor, you will fill out a form explaining why you would like the No Contact Order canceled and then the attorney will take it to a judge to be approved. If the crime is a serious misdemeanor, aggravated misdemeanor or a felony, you will have to sign a form requesting a hearing to cancel the No Contact Order. You will then have to appear in court on the date of the hearing and the judge will rule if the No Contact Order can be lifted. These hearings are usually scheduled 2 to 3 weeks in the future.
