Can a restraining order impact your life?

When Arizona couples go through a divorce, things may not always go as planned. For example, you may find yourself on the end of a restraining order that you don't feel is deserved. Unfortunately for you, these restraining orders can have a large impact on the rest of your life even outside of your marriage.

HuffPost claims that restraining orders are one of the worst things that can happen to a person during a divorce. They affect only one party, and that's you. This means that you have to constantly be vigilant not to break the restraining order, even if your ex-partner tries to make contact with you first.

A restraining order can easily affect other areas of your life, as well. It will possibly make it more difficult for you to get a job or even to find housing in the area. This is because your restraining order could show up in a background search. Without details on the incident, a potential employer or landlord could make the decision that you aren't worth the possible risk. They may thusly decide not to hire you or rent space to you.

Additionally, anyone with a restraining order will appear in their local police database. This information can get out to the public, causing the community to ostracize you. Many people don't question a restraining order and you immediately look like the bad guy because of that.

These are just a few of the ways restraining orders can negatively impact your life. If you've been placed on the receiving end of one, you may want to explore your legal options to limit its impact on your life.
