Attorneys There For You During Domestic Violence Claims

A person who has suffered violence, physical abuse or threats of violence can seek a restraining order against the abusive party. Typically, a court will issue a temporary restraining order upon a request by an abused party. At that time, the court will schedule a hearing regarding the issuance of a final restraining order. At this civil hearing, both parties can present evidence supporting or opposing the petition.

Whether you wish to obtain a restraining order or prevent the issuance of a restraining order, you should not assume that the court will necessarily see things your way. The court will make its decision based on the evidence presented to it. An experienced family law attorney can make a difference in your case, by presenting compelling arguments in favor of your position.
