About Restraining Order Violations
Once a restraining order is in place, there are a number of provisions concerning the level of contact and types of contact that are allowed. Generally, the restraining order will prohibit someone from communicating with another person and being in the general vicinity of that person’s home, school, workplace, and so on. The child or children of the person who files the restraining order may also be covered by the provisions of the restraining order.
The penalties for violating a restraining order vary from case to case. Generally the first offense is a fine, though you may also face jail time as well, depending on the situation.
