Oakland Restraining Order Lawyer
Restraining Order Violations in CA
If you are accused of violating the terms of your restraining order, you need to get the defense of an experienced Oakland restraining order defense attorney right away. You can be held in contempt of court if you are accused of violating your restraining order. 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. You do not have to fight these charges alone. Your personal freedom is on the line. When you consult with Oakland restraining order lawyers at the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, we will dig into your case and make you aware of your options so that you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed.
5 Restraining Order Penalties in California
You may be subject to the following ramifications if the restraining order is granted against you:
- The restraining order may be enforced against you by any law enforcement agency anywhere in the state of California that has knowledge of your restraining order.
- Most likely, the restraining order will be filed with the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System, which will allow the restraining order to appear on your record for up to five years if you are stopped by a law enforcement officer.
- You could be ordered by the court to leave your place of residence, taking only your most personal of possessions.
- You may be limited in your ability to travel.
- You could be ordered to attend and complete an expensive and time consuming 52-week batterers or anger management program.
These are just a few of the impacts a restraining order could have on your life. Restraining orders will show up on a background check and are a matter of public record, available for your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to see.
