There are many steps involved in obtaining a restraining order against another individual, and if someone has succeeded in procuring a restraining order against you, you need to know what your rights and your obligations are. In order for an individual to obtain a restraining order against another individual, they are several things that must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt including:
- Willful and malicious conduct toward a specific person with intent to seriously alarm or annoy that person.
- Knowingly engaged in conduct at least three times to that specific person that caused significant emotional stress for a reasonable person.
- Victim feels that they are in imminent danger.
Once a temporary restraining order is granted the defendant has an opportunity to defend themselves in court during a hearing that will be set within ten days of the issuance of the temporary restraining order. If a long-term restraining order is granted, the party named i n the order must be careful to comply with all of the terms of the order or risk being in violation of the restraining order. If found to be in violation of the restraining order you may be incarcerated, fined and be penalized with probation.
