Restraining Order Violations in Tempe
Tempe Domestic Violence Lawyer - Work with a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney
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.
