Stay-at-Home Violation

Overland Park Stay-at-Home Violation Attorney

You Shouldn’t Have to Suffer More Than You Already Have

Ever since the COVID-19 virus first posed a threat to the nation, states have implemented stay-at-home orders to reduce the risk of public exposure to the illness. These mandates are meant to safeguard public health from this highly infectious disease; however, they have also forced Americans to make drastic changes to their lifestyles. Millions of people lost their jobs, livelihoods and peace of mind. Even worse, countless lives have been lost.

For weeks and months, citizens have tried to adjust to the short-term norm of Quarantine. Learning to live under the same roof 24/7 and manage different personalities has proven to be tough for many families. The transition to stay-at-home life for those who live alone or away from their family is particularly challenging, as they are isolated from their loved ones at a time when comfort is needed. Whatever the reason may be, if personal circumstances resulted in you violating the current stay-at-home order, you’ll need an attorney to help you fight the charges. Gigstad Law Office, LLC can help.

While millions of citizens are doing their best to accommodate public health standards, some are successful, and others aren’t. Contact us online or call (888) 387-2036 if you were fined for violating your stay-at-home order.

COVID-19 Facts

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines COVID-19, otherwise referred to as the coronavirus, as an illness caused by a virus that can spread from person to person. You can become infected when someone with the virus sneezes, coughs, spits or talks, or if you touch a surface with the virus on it. Because the coronavirus is so contagious and deadly, the state has implemented strict stay-at-home orders to protect citizens from contracting the disease.

As of April 30th, the state of Kansas reported 4,238 cases and 129 deaths.

Violation of Stay-at-Home Orders

If law enforcement suspects that you are driving or out in public for nonessential reasons, you may be fined hundreds or thousands of dollars. The state issued a stay-at-home order which outlines various rules and regulations that must be followed during COVID-19.

“Essential Activities” are defined as such:

  • Obtaining food, medicine, and other household necessities
  • Performing, or going to or from work at a business or organization to perform, an essential function
  • Seeking medical care
  • Caring for children, family members, or pets, or caring for a vulnerable person in another location
  • Engaging in an outdoor activity, provided individuals maintain a 6-foot distance from one another and abide by the 10-person limit on gathering size

Local jurisdictions can decide how they want to punish those who violate the mandated stay-at-home order. There are no formal legal penalties that define how to penalize violators, therefore the courts can decide how they wish to fine you. You will more than likely be fined, but since there are no known legal penalties for violating this statewide rule, there’s a chance you may be punished more severely. Whatever it is you are facing, contact us so we can review your case.
