Raleigh Protective Order Violations Defense Attorney

Protective order violations, Chapter 50B violations or restraining order violations can lead to serious consequences. Punishments for violations of protective orders in North Carolina include jail time or serious fines. While the order itself is a civil court matter, the violation of a domestic violence protective order is a criminal issue.

Once issued, a protective order will substantially restrict your movement. You may be kept from your family, your home and even your work.  Contact Marcilliat & Mills PLLC today for a free consult with a Raleigh defense lawyer today. We will fight to stop the issuance of a protective order and will defend you against alleged violations of a protective order or Chapter 50B throughout North Carolina.

Fighting to Prevent the Restraining or Protective Order

While we defend against alleged violations of protective orders, you will be better off if we can actually prevent the order from being issued in the first place. If you have been accused of domestic violence or served with notice of a protective order hearing, call our Raleigh defense lawyers as soon as possible.

We are experienced criminal defense attorneys and we know that false accusations of criminal acts are made for many reasons and do happen. We understand that ex-spouses seek revenge by alleging domestic violence; this may prevent you from spending time with your children or going about your daily life. That’s why we provide aggressive defense as soon as you are served with the papers about a protective order hearing. We urge you to call 919-838-6643 when you learn that you may be served with a protective order.

When someone alleges domestic violence or harassment and goes to civil court to get a protective order or Chapter 50b order, we persuasively argue against the order. We will fight the factors that show cause for a protective order, including evidence that you were:

  • Attempting to cause bodily injury
  • Causing bodily injury
  • Continuing harassment
  • Causing a family member fear or substantial emotional distress

Protective Order, Harassment Order or Restraining Order Violations

North Carolina courts issue protective orders to prevent harassment, abuse or the possession of a weapon. Once issued, the orders are in place for one year. If you violate an order of protection or harassment order, you will be arrested and criminally charged. The consequences attach immediately upon violating the order, but we can still fight them. If you are in the military, law enforcement or other weapon-bearing profession, the issuance of a protective order will prohibit you from carrying a weapon and effectively stop you from being able to do your job.
