A Two-Step Process
Getting a restraining order is a two step process:
First — You must ask the court for a temporary (ex parte) restraining order. Legally speaking, you must do this yourself. If you want help doing this however, our firm can prepare the petition and accompany you to court.
Second — A hearing for a final order will be scheduled for a date shortly after the issuance of the temporary order. It is essential to have legal representation at this hearing. Our firm can present evidence in support of your case and challenge evidence presented by the other side.
If both parties consent to the temporary order, no hearing is necessary. Consenting to the order could threaten your rights and legal options in ways you cannot anticipate. Get legal help today.
If You Are Seeking a Restraining Order
If you or a member of your family has been physically harmed or threatened, get legal help today. An attorney can explain the legal process and discuss the particular legal issues in your case. Our firm can handle all aspects of your case, seeking to obtain a final protective order as soon as possible. If needed, we can also initiate an action to obtain a modification in a custody or visitation order.
If You Are the Subject of a Restraining Order
You should not attempt to represent yourself at the hearing for the final order. The imposition of a final order could force you from your home or result in the loss of your custody or visitation rights. The Law Office of Amy L. Gervich will vigorously defend your rights and interests in the final order hearing.
