Courts in Georgia are concerned about family violence. They will scrutinize domestic violence cases thoroughly and there will be little opportunity for leniency. The impact of a domestic violence charge is not just felt after being convicted. Restraining orders or temporary protective orders can have a dramatic impact on your life.
Possible conditions of a restraining order can include:
- No contact with the other party
- No returning to a shared home
- No alcohol
- No possession of firearms
Violation of any of these terms can result in a separate criminal charge being filed. Many people do not realize how serious these orders are taken. For example, no contact means:
- No talking to that person
- No telephoning
- No e-mail messages
- No texting
- No sending messages through a third party
Any contact could result in an aggravated stalking charge being filed against you.
