You Must Be Careful to Avoid Interference With Judicial Procedure
It does not take a dramatic event or obvious breach to be considered in violation of an order of protection or harassment injunction. For example, if you had been instructed not to contact the plaintiff other than by text or e-mail, but you contact him or her by phone to say you will be picking up your son from school, you would be in violation of the order and exposed to the consequences. This would be considered interference with judicial procedure and could have a negative impact on the outcome of your case.
