An order of protection, often referred to as a restraining order, restricts an individual from contacting, interacting with, and being within a certain distance from the individual protected under the order. Being cut off from your child, spouse, or significant other can create an extreme hardship on an individual. This difficulty in maintaining the court appointed distance from your loved ones can lead to an accusation of a violation of your restraining order. The violation of a restraining order usually leads to the immediate arrest of the accused individual. An individual charged with violating a restraining order can be sentenced to jail and ordered to pay fines. If you have been accused of violating the terms of your restraining order, you should contact an experienced Tempe criminal defense attorney immediately to discuss your options.
