There can be both civil or criminal domestic violence no-contact orders against an accused.
Violation of either the Family Violence Protection Act Order of Protection or a no-contact order in a criminal domestic violence action is very serious.
Violation of the Order of Protection can result in a number of penalties including orders of contempt and bench warrants. Violation of a no-contact order in a criminal domestic violence action results in additional criminal charges.
Repeated or aggravated violations can result in aggravated stalking and other felony charges.
