Restraining Orders & Protective Orders
Has a Restraining Order Been Filed Against You?
If you have been accused of
domestic violence, there is a good chance a restraining order will be issued against you.
Restraining orders and protective orders are issued by the court on behalf
of domestic violence victims against their alleged abuser or stalker.
If a restraining order has been issued against you, you will no longer
be able to come within a certain distance of the victim, their home, or
their workplace. You also will no longer be able to come into contact
with the victim. This refers to in-person physical contact, as well as
contact though email, regular mail, the telephone, web chat, instant messaging,
text messaging, or any other form of communication.
Restraining Order Violations
The restraining order or protective order will include specific instructions
that you must follow at all times. It is very important that you do not
violate the terms of your restraining order. A restraining order violation
is a crime in and of itself, and will result in additional criminal charges
and penalties. During such an unsettling time, the last thing you want
or need is to risk your rights again by facing additional charges.
