Restraining orders are issued for people who fear for the lives and safety of themselves and their children. Restraining orders begin as temporary until a hearing is held, at which time they can become permanent. These orders are difficult to change, so it is vital to have an experienced lawyer to advocate for you — whether you are the plaintiff or defendant.
Through our law firm, we can help with several scenarios:
When you file for divorce, an automatic restraining order is filed that basically informs parties not to bother each other. If this order is ignored and actions are serious, one party can ask the court for a temporary protective order, which requires a hearing approximately two weeks later. If children are involved, the courts can order that parenting time become supervised.
Depending on the situation, this might include supervision by a third party and a requirement that the transfer of the child take place in public. Our team of experienced Adams County restraining order attorneys will review all the options and ramifications with you and represent you for any issues throughout the legal process.
