But even if you are not arrested or charged with a crime, it is important to understand how you will be impacted by a permanent restraining order: it can result in the loss of your job, your professional license, and can impact your ability to travel or get housing.
You will not be able to own or carry a firearm, enlist in the military, obtain many student loans, or enroll in some graduate school programs. In domestic violence matters, if you are required to carry a gun for your career, whether you work in law enforcement, the military, or in private security, absent an exemption, which is rarely granted, your job will be significantly affected.
