Legal Question

Asked on: 6/14/13, 9:46 pm

My husband was arrested for domestic violence and is in jail waiting for his court date next Tuesday. I filed a restraining order against him today, and it will not be seen by the judge until Monday. I filed the order because it is part of the process. I am not afraid of my husband coming to harm me. We had a fight, it got way out of control, and I need to call the police.

In the meantime, am I allowed to go to the jail to visit him? Or am I just automatically not allowed because I am the victim? Or am I not allowed because I filed a restraining order? Thank you.
