What is a Restraining Order?

Restraining orders, also known as orders of protection, are court orders that demand individuals to cooperate with a specific set of orders. Restraining orders often require the party served with the orders to refrain from certain acts. These orders are commonly served in conjunction with domestic violence and sexual assault cases. The stipulations of restraining order laws vary from state to state.

What Should I Do If I've Been Served with a Temporary Restraining Order?

If you have been served with a temporary restraining order, you will be ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim. You may also potentially be at risk of losing access to your home and contact with your children. The court will establish a date and time for your hearing. This hearing will determine if a permanent injunction for protection is necessary. We recommend hiring an experienced Restraining Order attorney to represent your best interests. The severity of this hearing could impose life-long consequences if the injunctive relief is approved.
