Restraining orders, also known as protective orders, can have a serious

domestic violence, you could be facing protective orders that severely limit the legal interactions
allowed with your family.

order to provide you with more freedom. When you hire our firm, you put
more than 75 years of legal experience to work on your case. Additionally,

opposition will employ. We can effectively counter these arguments and
fight for your rights to be upheld.

What does a Protective Order Involve?
Restraining orders don’t come in a one-size-fits-all package. Depending
on your circumstances and the charges brought against you, you could be
facing a number of restrictions.
These restrictions could involve the following, and more:
- Prohibition from threatening or committing harassment, stalking, or domestic violence
- Prohibition from communicating with the individual who filed for the order
- Removal from the residence of the individual who filed the order, regardless
- Exclusion from the residence of the individual who filed the order
- Orders to stay away from any location that the petitioner or a member of
the household frequents
- Prohibition from entering a vehicle in possession of the petitioner
- Prohibition from possessing or using a deadly weapon
- Surrendering of any firearms
- Temporary removal of child custody, with the possibility of no visitation
- Surrender of vehicle or other essential items, regardless of if you own it or not
- Prohibition from consuming any controlled substances
- Obligation to pay support to the petitioner or child in the petitioner’s care
- Paying for the petitioner to receive shelter, counseling, medical care,
& property replacement
- Paying for any costs involved in filing for domestic violence or restraining orders
- Obligation to enroll in a domestic violence or alcohol/substance rehabilitation program
The court will determine what relief you must provide and what restrictions
are necessary depending on the facts of your case. As you can see, your
rights can be all but stripped away by a protective order and it’s
important to get a strong legal defense on your side to combat these charges.
