Understanding Your Options In Restraining Order Cases
Some marriages do not end well. When allegations of domestic abuse and domestic violence arise, however, the situation can quickly escalate and result in significant consequences for those involved.
A judge can issue a temporary injunction for protection without you being present, if the judge finds you may likely have committed an act of domestic abuse. This can immediately affect your ability to see your children, your ability to stay in your home and may influence custody and visitation matters in the future.
However, just because an allegation of domestic abuse has been made does not mean you are guilty of any wrongdoing. You have the right to make your case and present your side of the story with the help of a skilled protection for injunction attorney.

You have the right to an attorney at a hearing when a judge issues a permanent injunction for protection, also known as a restraining order. But it is important to get the help of an experienced family law attorney. Such proceedings are emotional. Without a calm, objective advocate on your side, you may harm your own case, even if you have done nothing wrong.
