Getting Protection With A Civil Harassment Restraining Order
There is more than one kind of restraining order. Each kind is designed for a specific type of protection in a specific situation. The most common types are domestic violence restraining orders and civil harassment restraining orders.
Civil harassment restraining orders are for nonfamilial or intimate relationships. This type of restraining order can apply if you suffer from harassment, abuse, threats or stalking by anyone, regardless of who that person is. However, a civil harassment restraining order cannot be ordered against a partner, relative or household member. It is not uncommon to see civil harassment restraining orders from nonrelated third parties, such as an ex-spouse’s new partner.
Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
Domestic violence restraining orders are brought against household members, relatives and partners. To qualify, you must have a close relationship. Domestic violence happens when someone causes or attempts to cause you physical and emotional injury, stalking, destruction of property and harassment.
If a restraining order has been filed unfairly against you, we can help you defend against it before it complicates your life. Violating a restraining order can result in serious consequences. It can impact other aspects of your life, such as where you live, your ability to own a gun and the amount of time you can spend with your children.
