What Does a Restraining Order Do?
A restraining order is a court order issued to prohibit a person from certain conduct, particularly in regard to contacting or approaching a certain person (the protected person). A person who violates a restraining order may be arrested and may face criminal charges and serious penalties, including imprisonment and fines.
A person who has a restraining order filed against him or her may be required to:
- Remain a certain distance away from the protected person and his or her home, workplace, school, or vehicle;
- Refrain from abusing or threatening the protected person;
- Move out of a residence shared with the protected person;
- Refrain from contacting the protected person in any way;
