my retraining order was that I was not to call her and one night I accidently called her
Optional Information: Washington, North Carolina
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.
Please note that I will be in and out of the office today. If you have further questions, please post them and I will reply as soon as I return. Thank you.
Reply to LawNinvest's Post: She did report them
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.
