In Riverside, just like in most counties, a violation of a restraining order can result in either additional jail time or further restrictions on your restraining order. Once you have been served with a restraining order, you must abide by the restrictions that are placed upon you. However, you may attempt to modify the order if there are parts that you don’t agree with.
