Please stop pressuring her this way. It can land you in prison.

I am concerned there is a protective order in place and you and your ex are obviously still communicating. This is a violation and can lead to you having a criminal case against you rather than a civil case. I suggest you speak with an attorney before further violating the order. If your ex wants to withdraw the case, she can also speak with an attorney or a victim's counselor. Violating a protective order is a serious matter, even if your ex was the one who instigated the communication.
