When a Restraining Order may be Necessary
Are you living in fear, being threatened or harassed? If so, there may be a solution.
The Domestic Violence Prevention Act was established to protect victims of domestic violence and abuse. The situation your facing may be extremely violent where you fear your safety to embarrassing and disruptive to your living.
Generally the purpose of getting a Restraining Order is to prevent recurrent domestic violence and to ensure a period of separation between the people involved. When there is proof of past abuse our law firm may be able to exclude a person from living in your home, get a stay away order, or obtain an order to restrain them from a specific behavior, with a time limit of up to five years.
A Domestic Violence Restraining Order can allege abuse as:
- Sexually Assaulting
- Destroying Personal Property
- Disturbing the Peace of the other party or named household members
Lastly, not all abuse is physical abuse. Contacting someone continuously by mail or email or text may constitute abuse. Stalking, following, tracking may also constitute abuse. If you are facing any of these types of abuse, call the Law offices of Richard K. Isles to discuss if a Restraining Order may be an appropriate action in your family law case.
