When an order of protection is issued, an individual is either prohibited from certain actions or ordered to do something based on a previous domestic violence dispute. Also called restraining orders, the issuance of an order is a serious situation that must not be taken lightly.
In some situations, the violation of a restraining order occurred by accidental contact. If the other party was somewhere you did not expect him or her to be, such as at a family function, or you returned to your home to get some clothes thinking the other party was at work, you could still be charged with violating the order of protection.
Some individuals violate the order without even knowing that they were violating. This is why it is so essential that you understand even the smallest details of the restraining order that may affect your life. Judges look harshly upon any type of violation and do not always give consideration to the reasons that the order was violated.
