Impact of restraining order

My husband and I are separated. If someone else files a restraining order against my husband, how does this impact him professionally as well as during our divorce proceedings? My husband has been harrassing someone and I would like him to understand the gravity of his actions and get him to stop before a restraining order is filed against him.

That would depend on who is filing the restraining order and what the wording of the restraining order would be.

If someone does a civil filing search of your husband, the restraining order would show up there. It should only affect him professionally if he is seeking employment or his current employer runs a background check on him. Criminal charges may have a more severe impact but that would depend on company policies.
