NC is NC.
Can you forward the email to your Lawyer and ask them to reply for you?
If he starts blowing up your phone because of the *crickets*, do what he only threatened to do, get an RO for harassment.
Do NOT let him talk you into ignoring a court order! Since the CS was taken to court, it is a legal issue and he cannot 'negotiate' his way out of it. If he has lost his job, and it will cause a hardship for him, it is HIS responsibility to appeal the decision. Even if you wanted to, you cannot overturn a judge's ruling. Don't let him bully you.Edited to correct stupid typos.
Two steps forward and one step backwards, is still progress.
