What Is a Restraining Order and How Does a Restraining Order Work

If you have suffered harassment or stalking, a stay-away order can protect you and your loved ones. In short, these orders can prevent a wrongdoer from coming within 100 yards of you. Additionally, restraining orders can provide protection to your home, your car, and your family members. Protective orders are commonly referred to as no contact or no harassment orders. If you want to know how to get a restraining order, or how to file a restraining order,  The Law Offices of Ross Green can help you navigate through the legal process.

On the other hand, if someone has sought a no-contact order against you, it is important to assert your rights, as a protective order can turn innocent conduct into a crime resulting in jail. Additionally, a restraining order can terminate your right to own a gun.

Protective Order Vs. Restraining Order

These orders are often called protective orders or stay-away orders. In short, these are the same court document but by different names.

Restraining order requirements as defined by Code of Civil Procedure 527.6, include “course of conduct or a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose, including following or stalking an individual, making harassing telephone calls to an individual, or sending harassing correspondence to an individual by any means, including, but not limited to, the use of public or private mails, interoffice mail, facsimile, or email. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of “course of conduct.”

A civil restraining order can last up to three years.

Restraining Order Violation

Although a protective order is typically a civil document, a violation of a restraining order is normally charged as a misdemeanor, Penal Code Section 166 or Penal Code Section 273.6, but can be a felony in a few situations. Either way, violating a restraining order can result in jail time, fines, and probation.

Potential Penalties for Violating a Restraining Order

  • Misdemeanor Jail Time (Up to 1 Year)
  • Felony Jail Time (Up to 3 Years)
  • Fines
  • Informal/ Formal Probation (Up to 3 Years)
