Restraining orders are specific orders of protection that can be issued
by the courts to limit contact between you and someone who has caused
you or your family harm.
Although restraining orders can be issued against people living outside
of your home, certain protective orders can be issued in situations involving
domestic violence within a family.
Restraining orders can be issued against:
- A spouse or former spouse
- Someone with whom you have a child
- A blood relative
- Someone with whom you have had an intimate relationship
What Steps to Take If You Are Experiencing Abuse
Domestic violence criminal charges are pressed by the state, not by the
victim, and if your spouse has been arrested you cannot simply request
that the police drop the case. In the event that you have factually been
abused, you will be glad to know that you have the full protection of
the law, as the police in our area take all forms of domestic violence
seriously, and if your spouse violates your temporary order of protection
in any way, it can lead to another arrest and criminal charges.
You can also petition the court for a restraining order before an arrest
has occurred, but the judge will only grant one when there is strong evidence
that it is necessary, and an attorney from The Virdone Law Firm, P.C.
help you with this. The order can even be extended for up to five years,
