Violating Restraining Order Charges

Ventura Domestic Violence Attorney

In California, if a judge issues a restraining order or protective order, it is a crime to intentionally violate it. The Law Office of Christopher P. Welch can challenge the validity of the order, help discover evidence demonstrating that the allegations are false, or help to avoid the harsher remedies that are within the judge's discretion.

Without aggressive legal advocacy, you could be facing the following serious penalties under California's criminal laws:

  • Felony penalties resulting in 3 year imprisonment
  • Misdemeanor penalties resulting in up to 1 year jail sentence
  • Excessive legal fees and court fines
  • Possible payment of restitution to victim
  • Loss of the right to possess a firearm for the duration of the restraining order

In addition to the above mentioned criminal penalties, you may have to live the rest of your life with a permanent criminal record. Don't let one misunderstanding or mistake change your life. Demand justice and demand complete legal protection by speaking with a knowledgeable Ventura domestic violence lawyer.
