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.

Potential Consequences

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.
