Criminal Defense Attorneys San Diego County
A restraining order is a type of court order which prohibits contact with a particular person or prohibits certain actions. A victim of domestic violence, abuse or harassment may seek a restraining order in order to get legal protection from further abuse or contact from the alleged abuser.
At times, restraining orders are sought out for frivolous purposes or based off false allegations. In these situations, it is crucial to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney. You may be facing criminal charges or may have to move out of your own house, if you share it with the victim. You may even face losing custody or visitation rights with your children. A legal professional can act immediately to protect your rights and also challenge the restraining order, possibly even getting it lifted so you can go back to your life as normal. If you are also facing criminal charges, your lawyer can take action to defend you in any court proceedings – helping you avoid a criminal conviction and serious penalties.
