Consequences of a Temporary Protective Order

If you do become the subject of a restraining order, you will be forced to adapt to a variety of immediate consequences that may include:
  • Not being able to return home
  • Not being able to see your children
  • No alcohol
  • No possession of firearms
  • No contact with the person who sought the restraining order
Any violation of the terms of your restraining order is a separate criminal offense and can result in you going to jail. Any contact with the other party, even if they initiate it, can be grounds for you being incarcerated for contempt.
