We will stand by your side through those steps.

What a Restraining Order Does

A restraining order, also referred to as a protective order or order of protection, essentially orders the person accused of domestic violence to stay clear of the victim. In some cases, this may mean that the person who committed the domestic violence must remove him or herself from the family home and make no contact with the victim through any means.

The restraining order is a civil remedy, although it may accompany criminal domestic violence charges. Violation of the restraining order is a criminal offense. In addition to helping you obtain a restraining order, we can work to ensure that it is being enforced properly.

Is There a Restraining Order Against You?

In some cases, a restraining order may need to be removed. Perhaps it was obtained erroneously or because of false allegations. Perhaps there is no longer a need for the restraining order. We can assist with setting aside a domestic violence restraining order.
