I Was Served with a Restraining Order: What Do I Do Now?

If you were served with a restraining order at work or home, that means either a civil court or a family court issued the order against you. It can be confusing to know what type of Court issued the order against you, and discussing your case with an attorney can be beneficial. In Connecticut, courts have the authority to Grant a restraining order between family and household members under Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) § 46b-15. Civil courts also have the authority to issue protective orders against anyone charged with sexual abuse, stalking, or sexual assault.

Connecticut Criminal Protective Orders

A criminal protective order is a specific type of restraining order that a Connecticut Criminal Court can issue. These types of protective orders are issued following an arrest for a domestic violence offense. If you have had a protective order issued against you, violating that order will result in a new charge.

Penalties for Violating a Protective Order and Restraining Order

Violation of a domestic violence criminal protection order or a civil restraining order, he or she will face felony charges. Violating a restraining order may be charged as either a Class C or Class D felony. If charged as a Class C felony, it carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail along with fines, probation, and submission of your DNA to the Connecticut Department of Probation.

Understanding the terms of your protective order is crucial because the local police department in your city or town will have access to a copy of the order. If you need help understanding your order’s terms or have questions, it is wise to contact an experienced attorney who can help you understand your rights.
