“What happens if my ex says that I made a phone call to her when she had a temporary order of protection several months ago?”


In New York, you will most likely be charged with Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree which is a Class A Misdemeanor and punishable by a maximum of one year in jail. If police allege aggravating factors, it is possible you could be charged for felony criminal contempt.
