Violating A Restraining Order Can Have Serious Repercussions

No matter the strength of the relationship, a disagreement is sure to happen at some point. Unfortunately, these arguments can turn violent. When one party feels threatened by another party, he or she can seek the protection of a restraining order. It is not uncommon, however, for a restraining order to be based on fraudulent information or factors unrelated to the current disagreement. If you need restraining order defense, it is imperative that you seek an experienced East Grand Forks defense attorney.

Dusek Law has decades of experience defending clients against a range of offenses. Depending on the variables you are currently facing, violating a restraining order can have devastating ramifications. If someone has filed a restraining order, order of protection or no-contact order, it is crucial that you seek legal help.

Do Not Violate The Order

Even if you believe that the restraining order has no merit, it is still a legal document. At our law firm, we can thoroughly investigate the matter, but you must follow the letter of the document until the matter has been resolved. It is not uncommon for restraining orders to arise out of disputes that happen during a divorce. In these situations, arguments become heated and tempers flare. Do not let a restraining order impact the direction of your divorce or child custody negotiations.

If you were accused of stalking or harassment, or a restraining order has been filed against you, discuss the matter with an experienced attorney before taking any action on your own.
