Representing Your Interests In Matters Involving Protective And Restraining Orders

At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, we represent people in matters involving restraining orders and domestic violence. We provide assertive representation to protect the rights of our clients and work diligently to achieve their goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Whether you are seeking a restraining order or are the subject of a temporary order, you should get legal representation as soon as possible.

A Two-Step Process

Getting a restraining order is a two-step process:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 the legal assistance you need today — with over 15 years of experience, the dedicated family law and divorce attorney at the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich can help.

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 compassionate lawyer can represent you in all aspects of your case and seek 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. Our dedicated attorney will vigorously defend your rights and interests in the final order hearing.
