How to Enforce a Restraining Order

Personal Safety: Get Legal Protection

In the United States, restraining orders are often used to protect victims of domestic violence. Once a victim has been granted an order from a judge, they can be confident that their abuser will not come within a certain distance of them–in most cases at least 100 yards. However, some abusers may try to violate this rule and enter into contact with the victim even after being told not to by law enforcement officials. If you find yourself in this situation, it is important for you to know how enforce your restraining order. This article will discuss what you need to do if someone violates your order and how enforcing it can help keep both you and your loved ones safe in the future!

Restraining Order

* You have the right to ask law enforcement officials for assistance. If someone violates your restraining order agreement and is in violation of state or federal laws, you can call 911. When they arrive, explain what happened which will allow them to take appropriate action.

* If you want a person who has violated your protective order removed from their home or place of employment (or anywhere that you are), then contact local police officers with jurisdiction over those properties as well as any other relevant authorities–such as security guards at places where they may be working undercover.

* Remember: just because there was a legitimate mistake doesn’t mean that it gets waived! The punishment does not expire after three days so long as the abuser continues violating the terms of this agreement.* There is no reason for you to tolerate this any longer.

I hope this has helped! Remember that the abuser can be charged with a misdemeanor or felony, depending on how serious they are violating their order and whether there is evidence of physical assault involved. It’s possible for them to show up in court as an expert witness against you if your case goes to trial.* In addition, some states require abusers who have violated restraining orders at least once before must attend counseling sessions which may last anywhere from six months to two years–and sometimes even more than one session per week* If it’s difficult for them not only during but also after these sessions, then there is no harm done because they will be better equipped next time.–“Trying again.”
