my fiancée is out on bail and cant come within 100 yards of me or our flat I find it really unfair there assumed that he had hurt me but he didn't.
AnswerTry speaking to the DA--they have the right to continue to pursue the case on their own (even if you don't want them to) but if they feel this was a one-time incident and will never happen again--they may drop it; they want to make sure no abuse is continuing once you two are back together--
