Restraining Order Violations

Restraining Order Violations

Once given conditions of a restraining order, it can be extremely easy to violate those conditions. It can also be easy to be placed under a restraining order without prior knowledge of the accusation or the proceedings - this can even mean that you end up evicted in the long- or short-term from your own home on extremely short notice. Because of the delicate nature and implied guilt that comes with the application of restraining orders, it is essential that you retain the services of an attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will be able to explain the conditions of your restraining order and make as certain as possible that you do not inadvertently violate the terms. This could be as easy as making a phone call, asking someone to speak with the plaintiff, or accidentally walking into a building or within a certain distance where the plaintiff is present.
 
If you do violate a restraining order, it is even more critical that you have an attorney on your side to help you avoid serious consequences such as jail time or fines. As explained above, it can be very easy to inadvertently violate a restraining order, but it is highly preferable to have an attorney review the specific case, the conditions of the order, and the overall context in order to best explain the circumstances. It is even better to have an attorney at your disposal before you are ever accused of violating a restraining order.

Ideally, our attorneys can help you observe a temporary restraining order without violations, and ensure that a permanent restraining order is not deemed necessary.
