Home » No Contact Order Attorney
There are several potential consequences for violating a no-contact order. First, the no-contact order can prevent a person from seeing their family, children, and friends. Second, it can limit where the person can go and specifically order where they can’t. Third, it can even cause the person to be removed from their home, regardless of circumstances, and forced to find new housing. Finally, it can deprive the person of his possessions or cause them to lose their job.
These orders are frequently violated through electronic communication, such as phone calls, texts, or emails, and each type of communication is treated as a separate violation and criminal charge.
A conviction for a No Contact Order violation in Washington State is a Gross Misdemeanor, which carries a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine.
