What is a temporary restraining order?

Restraining and no contact orders are regularly issued in domestic violence cases.

Essentially, the goal of these orders is to prevent any contact between the two conflicting parties. If you are subject to one of these orders, you should take it extremely seriously. This includes contact that is by phone, mail, email, text, or through a 3rd party.

Any violation of the order, even if the other person wants you to come over and visit, will be taken seriously and will expose you to further prosecution of charges such as violating the order or bail jumping. Remember that it is your life on the line, not the life of the other person. If the other person wants to visit, you say no. If you see them on the street, cross the street and avoid them. Do not answer their calls or respond to any emails or texts. The other person is more than capable of going to court to get the order lifted if that is what he or she wants.

What is the penalty for violation of a retraining order?

Violating the terms of a temporary restraining order is a misdemeanor.  The maximum punishment is 9 months in jail, a $1,000.00 fine, or both.
