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.

We urge you to call 866-630-2389 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.
