What is the best way possible to get a no contact order dropped?

There are 2 cases of domestic violence against my friend. his fiance is pregnant and she can’t tell him anything about the baby or anything because of a no contact order. No one is helping her (prosecution, victim’s advocate) to get the process to get the NCO dropped. I don’t know what to tell her so if there are any answers out there I would apprecitate it.

In most cases, the only way a no contact order is dropped is by having the alleged victim contact the court or the prosecutor to inform them of their desire to have contact with the defendant. Be mindful that once domestic violence charges have been filed, the prosecutors will look out for the best interests of the victim, even if this means denying her request to have contact with the defendant.
