Can you violate a restraining order by continuing to be logged into an ex-boyfriend's social media account?
Question Details: I have an an active 1 year restraining order against my ex-girlfriend. I logged onto Facebook and noticed that she has been logged into my facebook account for about 3 weeks. Is this a violation of the restraining order?
It depends on what the order says: if it only prohibits physical contact, for example, it would not be a violation, but if it prevents all contact, including electronic, it would be (being logged into your account would be a form of contact). Review the order to see if it is violation, and in the meantime, change your password and take whatever other steps are needed to lock her out.
