Yep. The police notify them if they’re comsidered too violent to risk a civilian notification, a process server serves them if they aren’t. It’s not a go to court WITH them and prove a case in trial. Skyscraper security offices file 20+ restraining orders a day, which is how people they eject are arrested by police if they return. Because there is a court order barring them from being there. They get filed every morning, and are in effect by the afternoon. Batches of hundreds of these things go through in bulk. Every single day. Domestics are a little more complicated in that YOU usually have to appear, but the person you’re taking out an order against does not. They’re served later that day or the next.They'll still have to be notified in a way though, that they can't come close, they have a very fragile ego, so I worry about any step I take at all.
Catch you outside... call the police. They just broke the order & are under arrest.If they catch me outside and approach me, it'll suck for my mental health, if they go on a rampage and talk shit it'll affect my social life and my mental health,
Go on a rampage... call the police. They just broke the order & are under arrest.
Some orders also include any 3rd party stuff (like if they post anything online, or call/approach any of your friends/family). In which case? You call the police. As they just broke the order & are under arrest.
That’s the thing about protection orders, restraining orders, etc. They don’t stop anyone from doing anything. They make it an arrest-able offense, even if “all” they do is call, walk by you, get a table at the restaurant you’re at, post a comment online, ring your mom, etc. Because now, it’s not “all” they’re doing. They’re in violation of a court order. Anything criminal on top of thay (harassment, assault, etc.) is charged separately. Violating the terms of the court order? Arrested.
