Accused of Violating a Restraining Order?
When you go through any type of legal trial or settlement, there is typically a court order put in place which instructs all parties involved how to proceed. This may involve instructions of what you are expected to do or not do, such as in the case of a restraining order.
There are legal consequences which you may face if you are found guilty of violating a court order, which is why it is important to follow it closely. At Stein, Lotzkar & Starr, P.S., our Bellevue criminal defense attorneys offer representation to clients who have been accused of violating court orders.
Common Types of Court Order Violations
The most common type of court order we deal with in criminal cases is a restraining order, although it is not the only type. There are also many other kinds of court orders, such as protective orders, child support orders, child custody orders, and even search warrants. Depending on the nature of the court order and the reason it was written, the consequences for violating it can vary greatly.
A few examples of ways a court order can be violated include:
- Failing to pay child support on time or at all
- Failing to adhere to the terms of your child custody agreement
- Breaking the rules listed in a restraining order
- Showing up at someone's house when a protective order was in place
