Dallas Protective Order Violation Attorneys

In domestic abuse cases, courts often issue protective orders. These orders are intended to keep alleged abusers away from the individuals who claim to have been victimized. Protective orders are similar to restraining orders, but there are certain restrictions on who may seek them. If you are found guilty of violating a protective order, you may face a range of possible legal consequences.

Common Violations of Protective Orders

Protective orders in domestic abuse cases often seek to prevent one partner from contacting the other. The partners may be married, unmarried, divorced, and may or may not have children. Accordingly, a violation of the protective order occurs when the restrained party seeks to contact the protected parties. Examples include:

  • Contacting a spouse in violation of a protective order
  • Contacting a live-in partner in violation of the order
  • Contacting children or step-children in violation of the order

Prohibited contact may include physical proximity, telephone calls, and e-mails. Violating a protective order could lead to prison sentences, heavy fines, and other undesirable consequences. For these reasons, it is advisable for people who are accused of violating a protective order seek the services of a competent, experienced attorney.
