What is a Violation of a Restraining Order?

If a person has been abused, threatened, or harassed by another individual, a restraining order or temporary restraining order may be issued by a court in order to protect the victim and lessen the risk of abuse. However, while a restraining order is meant to keep the abuser away from the victim, it may not guarantee absolute protection. In the unfortunate cases in which the abuser continues to contact the victim, the restraining order is violated. Violation of restraining orders are very serious for both parties.

The violation of a restraining order is a serious crime that can lead to arrest and other penalties. It may result in jail time, high fines, or probation. Repeat offenders that commit more than one violation of restraining orders may face harsher punishments and penalties that can be life changing.
