Scenario is like some clarification on for a scared friend. Her ex is currently on bail conditions to be of no contact

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Scenario is like some clarification on for a scared friend. Her ex is currently on bail conditions to be of no contact with her following a breach of domestic violence order . He has been charged once with breaching bail already. She has a counter order on her to be of good behaviour towards him. Despite bail conditions they have remained in contact however she has now said no more after the emotional and mental mind games started again he has now said of she reports the breach of bail for them being in contact he will charge her for breaching good behaviour on her DVO as she has asked he contact her at times.. is this a possible thing he can do as has left her too scared to report further breaches
JA: Were these federal or state domestic violence charges?
Customer: State
JA: Where are you located? Bail bond laws vary by state.
Customer: In Queensland
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Really just want to clarify if she can actually be charged for breaching the domestic violence order on her for asking him to make contact despite his bail conditions or if he is just using this as a scared tactic so she doesn't report anything further

I understand the ex is at breach of his bail conditions what I am querying is whether my friend could get in trouble for allowing him to breach these conditions and at times asking him to contact her. She wishes to report them but is fearful to as he has said he will counter change her. The only order on her is a domestic violence order to be of good behaviour as where he is on bail conditions to be of no contact with her for breaching the dvo on him which was non contact but has since been varied to allow contact

Your friend will not get into trouble. As long as she doesn't breach any orders that maybe applying against her. Otherwise your friend is okay to make contact if there is no orders restricting her making contact.

Customer
No there are no orders restricting her making contact just him saying it's not of good behaviour to ask him to call when she knows he is on bail and isn't allowed to but he does when it suits him. She was just worried he would be able to twist her asking him to contact knowing he isn't meant to into a breach of good behaviour as he threatened to do if she reported him for contacting her.
Thank you
