Handling Restraining Orders

Anyone who files a restraining order will be seeking a temporary restraining order that will remain in force until a hearing is held to determine whether the accused abuser has committed domestic violence. If the defendant has, the restraining order will remain in effect for up to five years.

We can help you file an effective restraining order or respond when one has been filed against you. In every case, we are devoted to our client's best interests. We handle protection orders involving a variety of issues such as:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stalking

For victims of spousal abuse, this means keeping you and your children safe from the threat of future harm. For those accused of domestic violence, this means investigating the claim to see if it is valid and helping you adjust if a court order effectively bars you from visiting your own home.

To schedule an appointment with an experienced lawyer, call us today at 916-229-6847 or contact us online. We provide experienced, knowledgeable representation dedicated to your well-being.
