What is a Domestic Violence Restraining Order?
A domestic violence restraining order is an order issued by the court to protect individuals who have experienced domestic violence or harassment. It is intended to prevent contact between the victim and the alleged abuser. This typically includes direct contact and indirect contact through a third party other than an attorney. At Simmons Wagner, LLP, we have extensive experience in navigating the intricacies of DVRO cases, and we are ready to fight for your safety.
Types of Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
There are different types of domestic violence restraining orders, each with its own unique set of legal implications. Our compassionate attorneys are proficient in assisting victims of domestic violence with various types of DVROs, including:
- Emergency Protective Orders: These are temporary orders issued by the court to provide immediate protection for victims that a law enforcement officer has reason to believe are in imminent danger of domestic violence.
- Temporary Restraining Orders: These are typically granted for a limited period, aiming to safeguard victims from stalking, harassment, domestic violence, or threats until a criminal court hears the case and rules on it.
- Permanent Restraining Orders: These orders may be granted after a court hearing and provide long-term protection for victims.
If you are in immediate danger, contact Simmons Wagner, LLP for assistance obtaining a temporary restraining order or emergency protective order. If a temporary restraining order has already been granted, we will help you pursue a permanent restraining order to provide long-term protection. Your safety is paramount and we will handle your case with care and compassion.
The Basics of Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
Domestic violence restraining orders require that the person it is filed against remains distant and avoids any contact with the protected person and any other individual named in the order. They must only visit children following the judge’s imposed custody guidelines and cannot interfere with any jointly owned property they possess with the victim. These individuals are also not allowed to own or acquire any firearms and must continue to pay spousal and child support.
You may request a domestic violence restraining order if you are facing harassment, abuse, or threats from a person that you:
- Are married or were married to
- Are dating or were dating
- Are engaged or were engaged to
- Co-parent with
- Cohabitate with
