Tacoma Restraining Order Lawyers

Washington State Restraining Order Laws

When you are the subject of a restraining order, you must obey the terms and conditions laid out by the court. Being subjected to the restrictions of a restraining order does not make you guilty of a crime, but if you disobey the terms of the order, you can be arrested for being in violation.

A first violation is generally charged as a gross misdemeanor and carries penalties of:

  • Up to a year in jail and/or
  • Up to $5,000 in fines

If you have been convicted of two previous restraining order violations, a third violation will be charged as a Class C felony punishable by up to five years of incarceration and/or fines of up to $10,000. You may also be subjected to community service requirements and/or community supervision.

Hester Law Group Protective Order Legal Counsel

In Washington State, restraining orders (also known as protective orders) can be quickly sought and obtained through the courts in cases of alleged domestic violence, stalking, or criminal harassment. While these orders are meant to protect alleged victims from threats of harm, they can have other consequences involving custody rights, where you can live and travel, and negative impacts on your reputation and your job. Violating a restraining order that has been put in place can also lead to serious consequences.
