What exactly does a restraining order do? In Oregon, restraining orders do the following:

  • Remove the accused from your home
  • Bar the accused from being near you and your children
  • Prevent the accused from phoning, texting, or emailing you
  • If the accused is your spouse, a restraining order can allow divorce proceedings to begin

Another benefit of a restraining order is that it’s backed by punitive measures. Violating a restraining order can result in fines, probation, or jail time.

If the accused contacts you after the restraining order goes into effect, call the police.
