Domestic Violence Lawyer in Solano County Standing up for Your Rights When No One Else Will

Restraining Orders in Solano County

How Restraining Orders Work

A person will most likely seek a restraining order if he or she has made allegations of domestic violence. This is a formal court order which mandates that the person named in the restraining order cannot come into contact with the named victim for any reason.

Specific terms of a restraining order may vary based upon the particular case. A restraining order may mandate that the alleged abuser cannot bring any further harm to the victim, that the abuser cannot come within a certain distance of the victim, that the abuser cannot contact the victim in any way, or other similar terms. A restraining order is meant to provide a victim of domestic violence with the protection he or she needs.

If you have been served a restraining order, you have the right to contest this. After you are served, a hearing will be held in court to determine the validity of the restraining order. It is crucial that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after being served a restraining order. You will have only a limited time to file an answer to the allegations brought against you in the restraining order.
