San Diego Restraining Order Attorney – Affordable & Best TRO Defense Law Firm Helping Getting Both Domestic & Civil Harassment Charges Dropped Or Reduced
A restraining order is a court order that helps protect people from abuse or threats of abuse from someone they have a close relationship with. You can ask for this if a person has abused you and you have a close relationship with that person. Close relationship means that you are: Married or registered domestic partners, Divorced or separated, Dating or used to date, Living together or used to live together (more than roommates), Parents together of a child, OR Closely related. If you are a parent and your child is being abused, you can also file on behalf of your child to protect your child (and you and other family members). If your child is 12 or older, he or she can file on his or her own.
If your relationship with the person you would like restrained does not qualify for a domestic violence restraining order, there are other kinds of orders you can ask for, including:
- Civil Harassment Restraining Order
- Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order
- Workplace Violence Restraining Order
- Domestic Violence Restraining Order
In addition to helping defend those with an unlawful restraining order, we can also help in filing for those who need to get one against another.
