Can a Lawyer Assist Me in Enforcing a Restraining Order Violation?
When you place a protective order, or restraining order, against someone, they are legally required to keep their space from you. This means they can’t contact you physically or speak to you over the phone, through text messages, and even through social media. If your aggressor violates the order placed against them, our team can help you take action and enforce the restraining order. Breaking a restraining order can possibly put your aggressor into further legal trouble and may deter them from contacting you further.
How Can an Attorney Help Fight Against a Protection Order Placed Against Me?
Conversely, there are times when those wrongfully accused of domestic violence get a protection order placed against them. These protection orders can keep them from seeing their children and even having a place to seek shelter, which can be damaging. If you find yourself in this situation, you should seek legal help to protect your rights and freedoms as they may be in the process of being violated.
