What can I do if the abuser violates the order?

You can call the police or sheriff, even if you think it is a minor violation. A violation of a protection order can be a misdemeanor crime punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.1

Make sure the police fill out a report even if they do not arrest the abuser. It is a good idea to write down the names and badge numbers of the responding officers in case you want to follow up on your case.
