Who can violate the restraining order?

Any person who is named as a defendant may violate the order. Remember this is a no contact order. If your abuser calls you, sends flowers, cards, letters, etc., the abuser is in violation unless otherwise worded in the order. 

The (victim) plaintiff cannot violate the order, but remember you requested this no contact order for your safety.
