Get Help With Restraining Order Violations
At the end of some domestic violence proceedings, the judge will put into place a restraining order — also known as an order of protection — that prohibits one party from going near the other. Courts and law enforcement officials take these orders very seriously. As a result, charges of violating a restraining order can result in years in prison.
At the Law Office of Jonathan M. Harvey in Columbia, South Carolina, I represent individuals throughout the state who have been accused of violating restraining orders. First, I will work with you closely to help you understand the requirements of your restraining order. Once we have determined what you can and cannot do under the law, I will begin building an aggressive defense against the charges you are facing.
