Restraining Order Questions
Here I am answering a question about restraining orders on Wiki Answers.
What happens if you break your restraining order in England Or anywhere else?
In: Law and Legal Issues, UK Law and Legal Issues
(in the US) A restraining order is an order issued by the court. If you disobey/break the court's order you are subject to immediate arrest.
Depends on what kind of restraining order it is ?
If he has the restraining order against him, she can see him all she wants.
But he will go to jail if he sees her!
Yes, it is a stupid law.
One would think the restraining order would be null and void the minute the person having the restraining order has any contact with the restrained.
After all, to get a restraining order in the first place, one must claim they are in great fear.
How can they truly be "in fear" when they are contacting the person they have a restraining order against.
I was a victim of this unjust restraining order law.
I created this web site www.restrainingorderblog.com because of what happened to me.
My advice to you would be to have your friend stay FAR away from her, no matter how she may beg and plead to get back with him.
Here in Hillsborough County Florida, after the third violation of a restraining order, charges are upgraded to Felony Aggravated Stalking.
That carries from 2 to 4 years in Prison!
So, this means if she tricks him into calling her, and calls the police, every call to her phone from his phone is a separate criminal charge!
So, imagine this ?
Him going to prison for 5 phone calls she said she wanted.
Until these stupid and IMHO unconstitutional restraining order laws are changed, this is the way it is, at least here in Hillsborough County Florida.
These current restraining order laws basically allow a woman to decide when, if, and how they are going to have you ARRESTED, whenever they see fit.
That is, only if they are able to entice you into violating the restraining order ?
Easy enough for them to do, if you are still in Love, and wanting to try and save your relationship.
Do not, repeat , do not violate a restraining order for any reason, no matter what.
