Domestic Abuse Injunctions - Harassment Injunctions - TROs
People are often surprised by just how easy it is to obtain a restraining order. Oftentimes, domestic abuse injunctions or harassment injunctions are granted based solely on one person's word over another. Having a restraining order against you is serious because at that point, a simple phone call can result in your arrest. In addition, restraining orders can negatively affect issues of child placement or result in your inability to possess firearms for an extended period of time.
If you have been served with a temporary restraining order, or notice for a domestic abuse injunction hearing or a harassment injunction hearing, it would be wise to have an attorney with you. The hearing is a formal proceeding where sworn testimony is taken and the rules of evidence apply. If a restraining order has already been issued against you, you may be able to appeal that decision and have it dropped. Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating these types of cases and can help you avoid having a restraining order placed against you. Contact our firm to see how we can help.
