There are many misconceptions about restraining orders or protective orders. One is that you're not breaking the terms of a no-contact order if the person who has one against you gives you permission to break it. This is still a violation and can still get you into hot water with the North Carolina criminal justice system.
An emergency order for protection under Chapter 50B of the North Carolina general statutes can be issued by a judge even before a person accused of committing domestic violence has the opportunity to defend him or herself. A Chapter 50B order can keep you from your home, from your family, from traveling within a certain distance of the person who accused you of domestic violence, your work (if you work with your accuser) and other places.
