The Outcome to Violating A Protection Order

Until a protection order is modified or changed it prevents you from having any contact with your partner. Even having a third party, like a friend or family member, contact your partner on your behalf could lead to criminal charges.

Doing that is a new criminal offense – in addition to your domestic violence charge.

You Could be Remanded to Jail

That type of protection order violation is a misdemeanor offense. And, in most cases, the mandatory protection order a condition of your bond.

That means, if you violate the protection order there is a basis for a bond violation. A bond violation can be problematic for your original case’s defense. It can also mean jail time and fines.
