What is an Order of Protection?
Order of Protection Attorney in Riverside, CA
Oftentimes in domestic violence cases, orders of protection are issued to prevent further harm from coming to the alleged victim. These orders can include provisions for no-contact, remaining a certain distance from the inhabitance of the alleged victim, and many other requirements. While it is not a crime for the protected person to contact you, it is a criminal offense for you to violate the terms of this a no-contact order in any way. If you contact them in any way, even through the use of a third party, you could be arrested and charged with a criminal offense.
In cases of a violation of a no-contact order, the fact that the protected person contacted you first is not a valid defense. It is also important for you to know that only the issuing court can modify a restraining order. Even if the protected individual wishes for the order to be modified, he or she is powerless to do so without the consent and action of the court. Restraining orders can be helpful in some cases; however there are many cases in which an individual is unable to communicate with his or her loved ones.
