Family members who have been harmed or are in fear of being harmed may request a protective order. This may be referred to as a restraining order.
Where a protective order/restraining order is intentionally violated, such violations are deemed to be criminal acts which can result in separate criminal charges. An individual who intentionally violates a protective order may face fines and jail time, in addition to criminal charges that may have occurred that resulted in the protective order being sought in the first instance.
