If someone has filed a
restraining order against you, it is very important that you do not violate the restraining
order in any way. Restraining order violations are a crime in and of themselves,
and can result in additional penalties, including jail, fines, and extended
probation. Even if you think the restraining order is unfair or based
on lies, you must make every effort to comply with the terms of the order.
You are already in trouble with the law, and the last thing you need is
to face additional penalties for a restraining order violation. Furthermore,
if you are involved in some type of child custody dispute, violating a
restraining order will look very badly on your part and undoubtedly have
a negative effect on the outcome of your case.
