What happens if you violate a restraining order?


Answer by  worker76 (773)

More than likely by violating a restraining order you will be sent to jail. This depends on the severity of the violation though.If you do something small you may get a slap on the wrist or a warning.if its a major violation you will definitely do jail time and charges will be brought against you. possibly stalking charges.

I am in law enforcement. If you violate it, then you will be arrested, fined, and if you have a custody dispute with children, then you will most likely lose. A restraining order is put in place because the subject in question has a geninue fear. This would be considered a domestic violence to violate it.

If you violate a restraining order, you run the risk of being arrested and having charges filed against you. If someone has a restraining order against you, that person does not want you in his or her life. Stay away because no good will come out of stalking a person. Don't mortgage your future by making bad decisions now.

Violating a restraining order is a crime. If you do it, the judge will hold you in contempt. It is up to the judge what the exact penalty will be. It could include a fine or jail time--possibly as much as six months. It would also mean having a criminal record.
