How to get an Emergency Protective Order Removed in Kentucky?

Thursday, me & my boyfriend got into an altercation. There was really
no hitting besides mainly pushing & shoving. My phone got broke in the
middle of this & 911 had gotten dialed, even with my flip phone broke
in half the police still had the entire conversation recorded. They showed
up when my Mom was on her way to pick me up, because they couldnt figure
out an 'aggressor' they took both of us to jail for 4th degree assault,
minor injury. In court the next day, we both took the guilty plea & the
judge put an EPO against us. We have been together a year & a half
& I am pregnant, this is something that just got out of hand but
because I am pregnant neither one of us want the EPO on us. He cant attend
my Dr. Appts because of this & I cant talk to him & let him know
how the Dr. Appts went, etc. How do I go about getting this dismissed?


He is honestly not a bad guy, he has never put his hands on me &
neither of us have ever had an assault or any kind of violence charge
against us.

An EPO is a court order and the court that issued the order would have to rescind it. It might help if both of you agree to attend some anger management counseling then petition the court to remove the order based on successfully completing it.

No matter how much you try to minimize it, a pushing and shoving altercation when you're pregnant is serious business. While you and your boyfriend are trying to avoid an inconvenience, the judge is trying to protect your child, something both of you should have more interest in than you petty squabbles. Learn to resolve your issues peacefully.
