Restraining Orders

Oakland Criminal Defense

Lawyer For Restraining Orders

Restraining orders are generally held in civil court as opposed to criminal court. In criminal court, restraining orders are called “criminal protective orders” and normally follow cases of domestic violence, battery, or assault. If you find yourself in one of these cases, you will want the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.

Restraining orders result from when a person files paperwork with the court to ask for protection by ways of a restraining order to be imposed on the aggressor or perpetrator. If there is enough of a factual basis to support a temporary restraining order, one will be granted until the actual hearing for the Judge to determine if the restraining order should be permanent.

The length of the restraining order can be months or years depending on the seriousness of each case. If you are the one applying for a restraining order, or the one responding to a restraining order, it would be wise to have a criminal defense attorney by your side in court.

As of January 1st, 2019 we are no longer offering legal services for restraining orders.
