If someone had a restraining order put on them in family court and they are found guilty of DV can the charge be dropped?

Q: After being found guilty in a family court hearing of DV and a restraining order is finalized is it possible to have any charges on your record dropped oif the victim wanted them dropped or do those charges stay on the person's record forever? The person was never arrested for this incident.

A:  David's Answer:  There is no such thing that I'm aware of. I suppose one could file a motion to vacate the finding, but it may also subject the other party to sanctions and/or a perjury charge. -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
