Fighting Restraining Order Violation Charges In Minnesota
There are three types of restraining orders in Minnesota. They are:
- Order for Protection (OFP)
- Harassment Restraining Order
- Domestic No Contact Order (DANCO)
OFPs and DANCOs are those that are used in domestic violence cases. A harassment restraining order is used to protect someone from a person not related to them.
Considering that a violation of any of these orders can result in a criminal charge, it is best to avoid the potential for violation. Unfortunately, such violations can occur by mistake. For instance, you may not have known that the order was in place. You may also encounter the other party in a public place, not knowing that they were going to be there. There are many ways violations can occur without any intent.
