Riverside Order Violation Lawyer

Violating a Restraining Order

There can be severe consequences if you are found guilty of violating a restraining order, including jail time. If a crime was committed when the order was violated, such as rape, assault, battery or other forms of domestic violence, the penalties will be extremely harsh. Contact a Riverside domestic violence attorney if you are facing charges of violating a restraining order to find out your defense options. A skilled lawyer can review your case and provide vital legal advice regarding your situation.

Restraining orders are frequently issued in domestic violence cases to prevent a spouse from contacting or communicating with their marital partner. This can include emails, letters, phone calls, driving by the spouse's house or visiting their place of employment. Restraining orders can also be issued in cases involving ex-spouses, domestic partners, cohabitants and people involved in an intimate relationship. When a restraining order is violated, it is considered a serious criminal offense that can also result in a charge of contempt of court.
