There Are Real Consequences To Violating Protective Orders
All violence or threats of violence between members of a family or between people in a relationship are considered domestic violence, even when the people are dating. A protective order requires the accused offender to stay away from the alleged victim, his or her home and place of work. If the order is violated, the offender can be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, or in certain cases, a felony.
Violating a protective order can send you to jail and hurt your domestic violence case. If you are convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence, the Lautenberg Amendment will prevent you from owning or using firearms and ammunition. This is a serious issue for members of the military.
It is important to have an attorney represent you at any hearings regarding civil protective orders. We can also represent you in court if your family violence case goes to trial.
