Restraining Orders

People do not always put forth their best behavior when involved in a stressful and emotional circumstance such as divorce. Sometimes it may be necessary to obtain a restraining order to block the other party form certain actions such as removing children from the state or inflicting physical harm such as domestic violence. Once a child has left the state, it is much more complex to obtain the return.

It is crucial in these situations that you contact a local family law attorney that is familiar with obtaining restraining orders. Your own safety can be the issue or those of a resident child. Once there is a court order, violation of these orders can incur criminal penalties such as arrest and prosecution. Restraining orders can be obtained on an immediate basis.
