How bad is it to have one of those. Is it something that jobs look for? Does it come up right away when looking up someone's background info. Also is it temporary at first and can you fight it. If it's temporary or if you eventually fight it off can it completely go away from your record?
I do not believe they show up on background checks. There is a police database they appear in.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Although I don't believe they show up on background checks, they do often appear on rap sheets. It also depends on whether there is a criminal charge behind the restraining order.
