What a Restraining Order Can Do
In the most basic sense, a restraining order is meant to protect, spatially and verbally, the person who filed the order from the person it’s filed against. In general, a restraining order can:
- Establish a mandated distance to be kept between you and the other party
- Establish illegality of contact between the other party and you
- Establish illegality of contact with children and the other party
- Suggest legal consequences for a violation of the order
The benefits you could receive from a restraining order are numerous. In addition to having your personal space protected, you can also have peace of mind knowing that you and your children are also protected.
