  • Possible Consequences of Restraining Order Violation

    Posted Jun 18th, 2014 By in Criminal Law With | Comments Off on Possible Consequences of Restraining Order Violation

    A restraining order is a court ordered document that limits the contact between a protected person from another person or location. In California there are 4 different types of restraining orders:

    • Domestic Violence Restraining Order
    • Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order
    • Civil Harassment Restraining Order
    • Workplace Violence Restraining Order

    Violating any of them can result in criminal charges. If you are accused of a restraining order violation, our law offices can work with you to build a defense strategy.

    For the person to be restrained, having a restraining order against him or her can have very serious consequences:

    • He or she will not be able to go to certain places or to do certain things.
    • He or she might have to move out of his or her home.
    • It may affect his or her ability to see his or her children.
    • He or she will generally not be able to own a gun. (And he or she will have to turn in or sell any guns they have now and not be able to buy a gun while the restraining order is in effect.)
    • It may affect his or her immigration status if he or she is trying to get a green card or a visa.

    If the restrained person violates (breaks) the restraining order, he or she may go to jail, or pay a fine, or both.

    Repeat offenders can be sentenced with up to 3 years in jail. For more information on restraining order defense view our video here.
