Removal of Restraining Orders
When a restraining order has been issued with your name on it, it can create huge problems. You may not be allowed to enter your own home to get your clothing or property without a specific legal action to allow it. There are four varieties of restraining orders, and if you have been served with any of them without a real cause, it is crucial that you contact a lawyer to assist you in taking the legal steps to have the order cancelled. At the California Justice Law Group, the legal team is well-prepared to immediately initiate the steps to have you released from the restrictions of the order against you.
Types of Court Orders
The four common types of restraining orders are:
Emergency Protective Order (EPO): This is issued as a protective order by law enforcement to protect victims of domestic violence. The order is in force for 5 days.
Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order (TRO or DVRO): These orders are very easy to get from a judge. They must be legally served upon the individual named. The order is in effect for 30 days and can be extended by 1 - 3 years, and is usually used in domestic violence cases.
Criminal Protective Order (No Contact Order): These are orders that are issued in ongoing criminal domestic violence cases. The individual on the order is not allowed any contact with the person who is the alleged victim of the criminal domestic violence.
Civil Harassment Restraining Order (CHO): These restraining orders are issued against neighbors, roommates, co-workers or other individuals to halt harassment by the individual.
Seeking Qualified Legal Assistance
If you have been served any of these types of restraining orders and need to have it removed, there is a legal procedure by which this is accomplished. You must go in front of the judge in order to deal with the request. It would be considered almost impossible to accomplish without the assistance of a skilled criminal defense lawyer who knows exactly the actions to take to fight to convince the judge that there is no need for the protective order and to have it removed.
As these orders are extremely easy to get, there are many cases in which they are issued without real cause, and the procedure exists to handle this legal situation. At the California Justice Law Group, the legal team is extremely familiar with this process and can interview you to determine the quickest way to resolve the issue regarding a restraining order against you.
