Injunctions/restraining orders for protection are court orders that prevent contact between individuals. Violations of a permanent injunction can result in arrest and a first degree misdemeanor charge that can result in up to one year in jail for each violation. Stalking someone who holds an injunction is a felony. An injunction/restraining order can affect child visitation and employment status. Our criminal defense lawyers can often help you get an injunction/restraining order for your protection or prevent one from being wrongfully entered against you.
