Is an injunction the same as a no contact order?

Q: Is an injunction the same as a no contact order?

A: They are not the same. No contact orders are generally entered into as a condition of a pending criminal charge. A no contact order usually expires whenever the criminal case is closed. An injunction on the other hand, is an order that’s entered into by a civil court judge, that may extend indefinitely or for a longer period of time.
