Restraining Order Defense in San Diego

Get Experienced Advocacy from Our Top Criminal Attorneys.

When an individual accuses another of having threatened, assaulted, or stalked them, the person can fairly easily receive a temporary restraining order preventing the client from contacting the protected party at home, work, school, etc.  However, the client then is entitled to a court hearing to rebut the allegations.  One should hire an experienced attorney because if the temporary restraining order becomes permanent, it will result in a loss of that person’s gun rights and likely a “move-out order” from their own home.  Also, it can even lead to a loss of parental rights in some situations.  Finally, in many situations, it can lead to the arrest of the client if the allegations are seriously enough to result in criminal conduct.

There are countless cases in which a relationship breakup or divorce leads to one party filing a restraining order. This can be an effort to damage the reputation of the other person, or after an accusation of domestic violence. This misuse of the criminal justice system must be immediately exposed to the judge so that you can be free from the threat of arrest.

It is very important that you do not violate the restraining order, even if it has been falsely filed against you. If you violate the order, even to pick up your personal possessions, law-enforcement has the right to immediately put you in jail for the violation. This will make matters more difficult to resolve. In either case, our legal team at The Law Offices of Top Criminal Defense Law Firms, APLC, can help.
