If a Respondent violates an injunction, the Petitioner should call the Sheriff's Office. The Respondent may be arrested. If the Sheriff's office is unable to arrest the Respondent, the Petitioner can complete an Affidavit of Violation and submit it to the Clerk of Court. The Clerk will forward the information to the Sheriff's office for investigation. If charges are filed, the State Attorney may prosecute. This process could take up to 30 days.
