What happens if you are ordered a Restraining or Protective Order?
A restraining order or protective order can be issued in a number of different situations. However, they all have one thing in common; they are being implemented to protect someone and to prevent the accused from committing further crimes or harm against the victim. When a restraining order is for domestic violence sexual abuse, the accused will end up having to leave their home and will be restricted from even seeing your children or the spouse/domestic partner. Even if the police are summoned but the victim retracts the complaint afterwards, a restraining order may still be issued by police forcing the accused to leave the premises.
If a restraining order has been issued against you it is crucial that you contact the Law Offices of G. Randolph Rice, Jr., LLC, who can advise you of what you can and cannot do and what you should and should not do. Violation of a restraining order can result in being jailed, even if the victim named in the restraining order asked you or invited you to be in their presence or residence.
