Restraining Order Defense Lawyer in Lawrenceville

Served with a Protective or Restraining Order? Call 770.884.7469

Restraining orders and protective orders are meant to protect victims of domestic violence, stalking, harassment and abuse from further injury and danger. These orders place restrictions upon a person, restricting him or her from coming into contact with, or within a certain distance of, the person who filed the complaint or made the accusation of harassment or abuse.

Temporary Protective Orders (TPOs) are often a means for a victim to have a restraining order filed against a person before any court proceedings or a trial have taken place – as a temporary measure of protection. If you have had a TPO filed against you, you have less than two weeks to hire an attorney who can contest the order and have it lifted. If you take no action, you could be facing a permanent protective order or restraining order. In fact, violation of restraining orders can result in an arrest for aggravated stalking -- an offense bailabe only before a superior court judge.

While clearly serving an important function, this area of the law is also highly subject to system-wide abuse, as judges are usually eager to halt any threat of violence and wait for a formal hearing, even if there is really little basis to issue the restraining order. Whether you are requesting one or defending against one, having an experienced attorney can make all the difference.
