Yes, it's pretty common. It depends on how the restraining order was worded by the judge. Many years ago, I had a restraining order against my ex-husband. It said he couldn't go to my home or where I work. If the restraining order had said only that he couldn't be there if I was present, he could have gone in my home or on my job and waited for me until I got there. That could be disasterous in a domestic violence case.
