Restraining Order Violations

Restraining Order Violations

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer in Oakland

If you are accused of violating your restraining order, you can be held in contempt of court. As a restraining order is a serious court order, violations can entail serious consequences. Punishment for the violation can include jail time and often results in a felony or misdemeanor charge. The court retains the right to hold you in jail until your court date, at which time it will be determined whether or not you have actually violated the order.

If you find yourself in this position, do not wait to obtain legal representation. Time is of the essence when addressing and defending your case, as procrastination can mean increased jail time and a weak case when it comes to the court.

When evaluating your case, the court will ask the following questions:

  • Has the court issued a restraining order against you?
  • Did you know the restraining order had been issued against you?
  • Did you intentionally violate the terms of the restraining order?
  • Were you physically capable or did you have the "present ability" to carry out the terms of the restraining order?
  • Were the terms of the restraining order reasonable?
  • Did you know the terms of the restraining order?
