If you have a restraining order issued against you, I’m here to help you. Regardless whether the order of protection is temporary or permanent, there can be serious repercussions.
If the complaint was filed by your spouse, you may not be able to return home. This is especially difficult where children are involved. In addition, if you have a divorce pending, or if you have a child custody proceeding pending in Family Court, an order of protection could harm your legal position.
When you retain me as your lawyer, I’ll help you understand the charges against you. I’ll thoroughly examine the evidence in your case to determine if the charges are warranted. Many times the court is quick to issue these orders, especially temporary orders, without substantial evidence. You will, however, have a chance to contest these charges at trial.
It is imperative that you have a skilled lawyer to represent you in court. Domestic issues can be complex and often involve a lot of “He said — she said.” I help my clients establish the truth in these matters and ensure that their rights are protected.
