Temporary Restraining Order
The terms of a temporary restraining order will be set by the judge who issues the order, and they are likely to be shaped by the nature and severity of the perceived threat. Accordingly, there may be a variety of ways in which an individual might violate the order. These may commonly include:
- Making threats against the protected individual or individuals
- Trespassing on designated property
- Going too near to the person by violating in imaginary, legally-established distance boundary
- Attempting to contact a person with whom the order prohibits contact
