Restraining Order Laws & Violation Penalties

A Nevada order of protection can be filed by an individual who feels that he or she has been abused, harassed, or stalked or if the parent of a child feels that his or her child has been abused, harassed, or stalked. This order is meant to force the adverse party to refrain from contacting, threatening, or otherwise inferring with the applicant of the order.

Violating a restraining order is considered a misdemeanor in Nevada. It is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of six months, fines of up to $1,000, as well as payments for the victim’s attorney fees and medical bills. If you are also found guilty of domestic violence, of these penalties may be imposed in addition to the penalties associated with a domestic violence conviction.
