Temporary sole possession of your home

In addition, you can request that the abuser not be allowed to possess any weapons. If the protective order is violated, we can enforce it by contacting the police and the court. Violation of protective orders can mean a jail sentence for the offender.

If you violate the order by contacting your spouse, you could be charged with a crime and jailed.
