Understanding the Aftermath of Restraining Orders
In order to understand the consequences you could be facing, it is vital that you understand what a restraining order is and how it works. A restraining order not only affects your current life, but it will show up on your record and in background searches in the future, which can adversely affect you for years to come. There are many different types of restraining orders which are issued depending on the exact situation at hand.
A restraining order is issued to keep the alleged offender from:
- Stalking, hurting, or disturbing the named protected person
- Contacting the named protected person in any way
- Coming within a specific distance of the named protected person
