Violation of a Protective Order
Skilled Criminal Defense Attorneys in Hartford, CT
Protective orders are intended to prevent domestic violence offenders from
doing any further harm. These orders can ban an individual from very specific
forms of contact, including emails, text messages, in-person contact,
or visits to the alleged victim’s home or workplace. Even if you
were just sending a quick message to check on your children, this is considered
a violation of a protective order. If these protective orders are violated,
it could result in serious legal consequences.

What is a Protective Order?
A protective order, sometimes called a restraining order, is a legally-binding,
court-issued order that is intended to protect the alleged victim from
acts of violence. Protective orders can come in varying degrees, and may
ban only threatening behavior, or can prohibit all forms of contact, be
it digital or physical. If you had a restraining order against you and
you were accused of violating that order, it is important that you act
quickly to protect your rights.
The violation of a protective order can result in very serious penalties.
If charged with violation of a protective order, you could be charged
with a Class D felony. If convicted, you could spend up to 5 years in
prison, and might also face costly fines. Additionally, if you are currently
fighting for child custody or visitation rights, the violation of a protective
order could severely hurt your case.
