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.

If you were subjected to an unfair restraining order or have been accused of violating one, get the legal help you need from Hester Law Group. Our criminal defense firm has been defending individuals against all kinds of accusations and charges since 1968.

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.

Hester Law Group has maintained a long-standing presence in the Tacoma area that rests on a solid foundation of professionalism, care, and intelligent defense work. Our firm is committed to providing the support you need through your legal crisis concerning any restraining order. We are prepared to fight for the best possible outcome in your case through the application of our long experience and vast knowledge of the law.
