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 punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine up to $5,000.1
Make sure a police report is filled out, even if the police do not arrest the abuser. It is a good idea to write down the name of the responding officers and their badge numbers in case you want to follow up on your case.
