Restraining Order Abuse? Do not wait, act now!
A restraining order abuse needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Because a restraining order is a court order that is used to protect someone from being physically or sexually abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed, it is a serious threat to your freedom and reputation. The person getting the restraining order is called the “protected person.” The person the restraining order is against is the “restrained person.” Sometimes, restraining orders include other “protected persons” like family or household members of the protected person.
What does a restraining order do? They generally include:
Personal conduct orders
These are orders to stop specific acts against everyone named in the restraining order as a “protected person.”
These are orders to keep the restrained person a certain distance away (like 50 or 100 yards)
Residence exclusion (“kick-out” or “move-out”) orders
These are orders telling the restrained person to move out from where the protected person lives and to take only clothing and personal belongings
A judge will issue a restraining order against you if someone goes to court and shows that they are in fear for their safety because of your actions. Restraining orders are designed to provide some level of protection for victims of domestic violence. But in some cases it is no more no less than a restraining order abuse
For the person to be restrained, having a restraining order against him or her can have very serious consequences:
-He or she will not be able to go to certain places or to do certain things.
-He or she might have to move out of his or her home.
-It may affect his or her ability to see his or her children.
-He or she will generally not be able to own a gun. (And he or she will have to turn in, sell or store any guns they have now and not be able to buy a gun while the restraining order is in effect.)
-It may affect his or her immigration status if he or she is trying to get a green card or a visa.
-If the restrained person violates (breaks) the restraining order, he or she may go to jail, or pay a fine, or both.
