Restraining Order Violation Charges Require A Strong Defense
Protective orders and restraining orders are taken very seriously. Whether arising from a domestic violence arrest or a stalking charge, if accused of violating an order, you can face harsh penalties, including:
- One-year jail time
- Heavy monetary fines
Additionally, the violation can result in difficulty obtaining an acquittal of the original charges or difficulty in having the original charges dropped. The stakes are high, and your future is on the line. It is time to talk to an attorney at Cohen & Hirsch who can protect your rights.
Restraining orders can force you out of your own home, require that you stay away from your children and prohibit you from contacting the other party. Once an order is issued, your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or other individual can falsely accuse you of violating the order and can call the police at any time. Our law firm can uncover motivations for the false accusations and prove that you were not in violation.
Restraining order violations can arise from:
- Contacting the other party
- Visiting the household you have been ordered to stay away from
- Approaching the other party
- Harassing the other party
At Cohen & Hirsch, we will give you the opportunity to have your side of the story heard. We tailor our strategy to the specific facts of your case and ultimately strive for the best possible outcome on your behalf.
