Why a Restraining Order?

A restraining order, also known as a protective order, can prohibit an abuser (or someone who is threatening abuse) from:

  • Contacting a victim by telephone, e-mail, texting, written message or other means
  • Entering or waiting outside the victim's residence (even if the abuser also lives there)
  • Entering the victim's workplace or school
  • Making threats or following the victim during his or her daily activities

A restraining order cannot guarantee an abuse victim's safety, but it does place an important legal obstacle in the abuser's path, and there are legal consequences if the order is disobeyed.

Obtaining an initial restraining order typically requires filling out paperwork and appearing at a court hearing while accompanied by our experienced attorney.

We also defend clients who are falsely accused of spousal abuse, child abuse or abuse of significant others. Further, we can seek to have falsely obtained restraining orders overturned.
