Domestic Violence Protective Orders

Common Conditions of Domestic Violence Protective Orders
Being convicted on a domestic abuse charge and/or having a protective order issued against you can have very serious legal and personal consequences. A domestic violence order could result in your not being able to contact family members, including a spouse or child. Moreover, a domestic abuse conviction on your record has the potential to limit where you can live, where you are eligible to go to school, and where you can work.

Protective Order Conditions
If a person alleges that you committed an act of domestic violence against him or her, it is very likely that the court will enter a temporary protective order against you. If a court deems the allegations in a domestic violence petition credible, the court could subsequently issue a final protective order in your case. As part of that order, the court might impose one or more of the following conditions:
- The court might prohibit you from having any contact whatsoever (both in-person or electronically) with the person who is the subject of the protective order petition.
- The court might prohibit you from having contact with the person’s children.
- The court might prohibit you from visiting the person’s workplace.
- The court will prohibit you from abusing or threatening to abuse the person who is the subject of the order.
- The court may prohibit you from being arrested on another criminal charge while your domestic violence case is pending.
If you violate any of the provisions in a protective order, you could be arrested again. A protective order violation can result in a whole new set of criminal charges, making you subject to additional penalties if you are ultimately convicted of the violation.
