Getting a restraining order can be a scary and overwhelming process. But once you have one, it’s so important to understand what to do if the restrained person violates it. Having an experienced lawyer on your side can make all the difference.
First off, what exactly is a restraining order violation? Basically, it’s anytime the restrained person goes against what the order says. For example, if the order says they have to stay 100 feet away from you, but they come within 50 feet, that’s a violation. Or if it says no contact, but they call or text you, violation. You get the idea.
Now, I know you might be thinking, “It’s just a minor thing, not worth getting the law involved.” But hear me out. Any violation of a court order is a big deal legally. And it also shows the restrained person isn’t taking the order seriously. That means you could still be in danger. So never just let a violation slide.
If you experience a violation, having a lawyer on your team makes the process of reporting it and protecting yourself much easier. Here’s how we can help:
Bottom line, we make the whole legal process much less scary. You can feel confident you’ve got an expert on your side looking out for your safety and rights.
It may be tempting to just let a minor or accidental violation slide. But it’s so important to take each one seriously. Here’s why:
So don’t let any violation slide, no matter how small it seems. Report each one, and let your lawyer handle making sure there are real consequences. It’s the best way to stay safe.
If you experience a restraining order violation, you need to report it right away. Here are the steps:
Having an attorney guide you through these steps makes the process much less intimidating. We know exactly how to document the incident and present a solid case to the court.
When a restrained person violates the order, they face serious criminal penalties. These vary by state but can include:
If the violation involves violence, weapons, or severe harassment, the penalties go up. Subsequent violations also face harsher punishment. And a serious enough violation could lead to felony stalking charges.
But here’s the key – the court can’t impose penalties if you don’t report the violation. Letting it go unreported basically says it’s not a big deal. So make sure to speak up every single time.
If the restrained person violates the order, you may want to get it modified to add more protections. For example:
A violation shows the current order isn’t enough to protect you. So your lawyer can file a motion asking the judge for stricter restrictions. The process is very similar to the initial restraining order hearing. You’ll explain why expanded protections are needed based on the violation.
If a restraining order violation involves physical abuse or violence, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. For example, if the restrained person assaults and injures you, that’s a civil offense on top of the criminal charges.
A personal injury lawyer can help you recover compensation for:
This financial compensation can help you move forward and enhance your overall sense of justice. And it also imposes financial consequences on top of the criminal penalties.
If you are the restrained person accused of violating an order, you also need legal representation. A defense lawyer can help by:
Never try to defend yourself pro se against violation accusations. The stakes are too high. A knowledgeable lawyer can poke holes in the other side’s case and protect your rights.
