District Court

No Contact Order

If you are a victim of a crime, the Court may issue a no contact order while the criminal case is pending or as a condition of sentencing.  Criminal charges must be pending or filed.

If you have a court order, it is important to remember:

  1. Keep a certified copy of your order with you at all times
  2. The order is enforceable throughout the State of Washington
  3. If there is a violation of your court order, call 9-1-1 or your local police. Tell them you have a court order and it is being violated.

Whether or not you have a court order, if you are being harassed, threatened, or assaulted, call 9-1-1, or your local police!!

If the defendant violates the No Contact Order, the violator may be arrested or charged with additional criminal offenses.
