What happens if a No Contact Order is violated?
If a No Contact Order is violated, your abuser can be arrested. A judge can then either make the conditions of your abuser’s release from jail more strict, or order that your abuser be returned to jail (either for the remainder of his jail sentence or until the date of his criminal trial, if the trial has not taken place yet).
