Domestic Violence Restraining Order

If you have been a victim of victim domestic violence, you have the absolute right to seek a restraining order. These are designed to protect and provide relief for people who have been victimized by someone in the household or someone with home he or she has or had a significant relationship with.

The Domestic Violence Prevention Act lists the following as examples of abuse:

  • Intentional or reckless harm
  • Various forms of sexual assault
  • Attacking, striking, threatening, battering, or contacting an individual by phone or some other means with the intention of or to the effect of disturbing another individual’s peace

What Qualifies as Domestic Violence?

This relies heavily on the relationship between the offender and the victim. Mainly, domestic violence pertains to those who are or were romantically involved or have a familial relationship.

A domestic violence restraining order can be placed on any of the following:

  • Spouse or ex-spouse
  • Boyfriend, girlfriend, or ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend
  • Someone you share a child with
  • A parent, sibling, in-law, or adult child

If the relationship between alleged attacker and victim is not listed above, a civil harassment restraining order can still be obtained. These work with relationships such as friends, coworkers, neighbors, or other circumstantial relationship.

Consequences of a Restraining Order

If one has been imposed on you as the result of alleged abuse, it could mean an entirely different way of life – one in which you miss out on the people and places that mean the most to you. We are equipped both help victims obtain a restraining order and defend against them.

Restraining orders often mean:

  • Inability to communicate with the alleged victim
  • Inability to be at the alleged victim’s home, work, or children’s school
  • Your removal from your home
  • Unfavorable rulings in child custody, support, and visitation
