The Consequences Associated with a Restraining Order
Domestic violence is defined as any act of assault, sexual battery, or
aggravated stalking against one family member committed by another. Supposed
victims can file a petition and may receive either a temporary or more
permanent restraining order. While the court attempts to evaluate the
circumstances before granting an order, unfair decisions are unfortunately
A restraining order can require an alleged offender to:
- Pay child or spousal support
- Refrain from contacting their children or loved ones
- Pay for treatment or counseling sessions
- Leave their home and live somewhere else
- Give up their rights to firearms
- Relinquish their child custody rights
A restraining order can turn your life upside down and cause you to forfeit
the close relationships you have with your children. While the damaging
aftermath cannot be denied, you are not alone. At Albaugh Law Firm, you
