There are two types of restraining orders:
Violent or misconduct restraining orders fall within the ambit of the civil jurisdiction of our court system. As such the rules and procedures vary to criminal matters.
If a person disobeys the terms of a restraining order, they may be fined or imprisoned. These matters are serious in that any granted order remains in place for 2 years and any breach of the order is a criminal offence.
If you need a restraining order or someone has applied for a restraining order against you, Fisher Legal's criminal defence lawyers can assist by providing advice, negotiating on your behalf or representing you in court.
