A restraining order is a physical and legal document issued by the court that requires an individual to be so many feet away from you at all times. Most people get a restraining order against someone because they feel physically threatened by them. This means that, in most cases, when someone has a restraining order against you there is a good reason, and you likely deserved it.
Is there anything you can do to prevent a restraining order from happening? Some people just fight and argue. It is what they do. They can't avoid it. Does that mean a restraining order is unavoidable? Of course not.
Unfortunately, there is really only one thing you can do to prevent a restraining order from getting taken out on you. That solution is just to walk away before things get to the point of needing a restraining order.
It is all too common for a spouse to claim that their other spouse unfairly took a restraining order out on them. That other spouse chose to take out the restraining order against him or her. The truth is: that is not what happened at all.
Chances are pretty good you did something. You physically or verbally abused your spouse and possibly your children. This abuse is what led to the restraining order, which means the restraining order was your fault. The problem is that most people are unwilling to admit they are at fault for the restraining order.
You should never let yourself be alone with your spouse (or anyone who you get aggressive with. You should never allow your anger to overcome and control you. You should also never put your hands on another person when you are angry. If you really can't control your anger, you should walk away and calm down.
