San Bernardino and Riverside Restraining Order Violation Lawyers
All violence or threats of violence between members of a family or between people in a relationship is considered domestic violence, even when the people are dating. A protective order requires the accused offender to stay away from the alleged victim, his or her home, and place of work. If the order is violated, the offender can be arrested and charged with a crime.
Violating a protective order can send you to jail and hurt your domestic violence case. If you are convicted of misdemeanor or felony domestic violence, there may be additional consequences that come in addition to criminal penalties.
