Restraining Order - seriously affecting chances of amicable divorce

My husband was successful in having a restraining order taken out against me following a serious argument. I cannot contact him about anything directly or indirectly with the exception of arranging child contact and progressing the divorce through solicitors. I can't afford to challenge the decision in the magistrate's court at the moment. The impact of the order is really disproportionate and making the divorce costs really expensive for me. I am no risk to my husband. I was made temporarily homeless by the court decision as I am not allowed within 100 metres of the property. The children have stayed with him which was always his intention. Any thoughts on how I can help my husband see that it would be in both our interests for him to apply to the court to amend or cancel the order?
