What happens if I get an Injunction for Protection but the perpetrator violates the terms?

You should immediately call the police. Violating an Injunction for Protection is a crime and the perpetrator can be charged and jailed, depending on the severity of the violation.

You can also file an Affidavit of Violation of the Injunction with the same court that entered the Injunction.
