An injunction is an order issued by a court, commonly known as a RESTRAINING ORDER, to prevent another person, known as the Respondent, from having any contact, direct or indirect, with the Petitioner, or any contact with any place commonly occupied by the Petitioner such as their home or work. A harassment injunction restrains the Respondent from engaging in acts of harassment and can restrict contact. Both orders can also result in a loss of your right to possess a firearm.
Once an injunction has been ordered a violation of either type of injunction can result in criminal charges.
