How Can Law Firms Secure Restraining Orders For Victims?
Domestic violence restraining orders (DVROs) are intended to help safeguard families who are victims of domestic abuse. This protective order is only available in certain circumstances, however. In order to get a domestic violence restraining order, the parties must have either lived together, been in a dating relationship, been married or are registered, domestic partners.
In comparison, the civil harassment order is intended to protect other victims of violence or threats of violence such as a neighbor, co-worker or some other acquaintance. In order to give you more insight on your possible legal options, here are the different alternatives you can pursue.
- Emergency Protective Order – A type of restraining order that can be put into immediate effect after substantial claims of domestic abuse.
- Restraining Order – This is a temporary court order that requires the offender to stay away from the victim until the court can hear more evidence of domestic abuse.
- Final Temporary Restraining Order – After the court has heard suitable evidence, the court will issue a final temporary restraining order, which is a permanent edict that requires the victim to stay away from the victim.
- Civil Harassment Order – Unlike a domestic dispute, a civil harassment order is issued against individuals not identified under the label of domestic (cousins, uncles, strangers, etc.). Accordingly, a civil harassment order prevents individuals accused of stalking or abuse to come near you.

What Are The Effects Of Restraining Orders On The Offender?

He or she will generally not be able to own a gun, and the restraining order may affect his or her immigration status as well.
