Phoenix Restraining Order Violation Lawyer
Highly-Rated Criminal Defense Firm Serving Phoenix, Arizona
If you've been served a restraining order, otherwise known as an injunction
against harassment or order of protection, by the courts, you are expected
to comply with its terms. A restraining order cannot be changed except
through court action. Therefore, you cannot make contact with anyone named
in the order or you will be in violation of the court – even if
they initiate contact with you. Violations of these orders are considered
serious legal matters by both courts and prosecutors and could result
in harsh penalties being imposed against you. You will need an aggressive
attorney on your side as soon as possible if you've been accused of
a restraining order violation.

Restraining Order Violations in Phoenix
Even if the named victim on the restraining order initiates contact with
you or expresses a desire to do so, you will be in violation if you communicate
with him or her. Often times, restraining orders are used by "victims"
as a way to enact revenge or control in emotional battles with domestic
partners. This can happen in divorce and child custody cases or where
unmarried partners have ended an intimate relationship. No matter what
the circumstances, if you are found to have disobeyed any of the terms
set forth in the protection order, you may be subject to immediate arrest
and held in custody until you can appear before a judge who will make
a decision concerning your release.
Restraining order violations, which are typically charged as the offense
of "interfering with judicial proceedings" can result in a misdemeanor
conviction punishable by up to six months in jail plus a fine of up to $2,500.
