A Domestic Violence allegation against a military service member can have an immediate and devastating effect on the service member’s employment. If in the Request for Order, (DV-100) the court finds facts that warrant the issuance of a Temporary Restraining Order and one is issued against a military service member he or she will not be able to carry a firearm and hence this may affect present orders.
In a domestic violence action the judge can order the restrained person not own, possess, buy, attempt to buy, receive, try to receive, or otherwise obtain a gun while Temporary Restraining Orders or while a permanent Restraining Order is in effect. A violation by a restrained person can result in jail and/or $1,000.00 fine. A restrained person must turn over any guns to a law enforcement agency or sell any guns to a licensed gun dealer and then file proof that the firearm were sold or tuned in on form (DV-800). If the restrained person does not comply with the court order, they can be charged with a crime.
