A violation of a restraining order can result in fines and/or incarceration. The amount of fines and or jail time is based on the discretion of the judge and whether or not she reports the violation.

As I have stated earlier it will be up to the judge's discretion to impose your penalty but for NC being in contempt of court can subject you to 30 days jail time and/or a $500 fine.
