Why Are Restraining Orders Issued?
Restraining orders are filed against those who allegedly threaten another’s safety. This is a common solution when someone is being stalked, when they believe their child is in harm's way, or during a tumultuous divorce. However, restraining orders are not always filed fairly, sometimes barring people from their families when they did not engage in threatening behaviors. When you work with our firm, we can help you gather and present all the evidence needed to illustrate your side of the story.
A few common reasons restraining orders are filed include:
Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO)
Before a temporary restraining order is filed, the court often uses a temporary restraining order which only lasts a few days. It is important that you do not waste any time to take action after receiving a TRO because a permanent restraining order is likely in the works. It is imperative that you obey the temporary order even if it was based on a false accusation. It is also important to gather and keep any evidence you may have which can help fight the order.
Permanent Restraining Orders
In cases of alleged domestic violence or abuse, all allegations must be addressed in court before a permanent restraining order can be issued. This is why a TRO is often issued in the interim. During the court hearing, you will have the opportunity to discuss the issues of your restraining order. Typically, this hearing is set up in about 7-10 days from the time of the TRO or the request for a restraining order.
