Restraining Orders

Restraining Orders

If a court believes that if one person poses a threat to another, the court will issue a restraining order in an attempt to cease threatening behavior. Restraining orders are a serious and complex matter and should be treated with extreme attention to detail and sensitivity. Restraining orders can also be issues for civil matters, forbidding a person to contact another (usually a family member or ex-partner/spouse) or even approaching certain locations of business.
