Attorneys For Restraining Orders In Carlsbad, California
Restraining orders should never be ignored, especially in a North County divorce case. If you are suffering due to physical or emotional abuse by your spouse, partner or someone else, you have legal options to gain protection and we are here to help. A caring, experienced lawyer at Burke & Domercq, LLP, will hear you out and help you take prompt action, including seeking a temporary restraining order and following through to make it permanent. The order may protect both you and your children, and it may require the offender to stay a specified distance away from you at all times.
We also help individuals who have been served with temporary restraining orders make sound decisions and protect their rights. All too often, failing to act and underestimating the potentially sweeping, life-altering consequences in these situations lead to long-term regret.
Obtaining Or Contesting Restraining Orders · Balanced, Informed Counsel
With decades of experience across the spectrum of California family law cases, our attorneys are exceptionally equipped to represent you in a divorce or child custody matter in which domestic violence allegations are a factor. Key considerations for you may include:
- While the process for obtaining a temporary restraining order is often straightforward, the court will look more closely at the situation and hear testimony from the accused person prior to entering a permanent restraining order.
- The issuance of restraining orders not only restricts a person’s right to possess a firearm and may have implications on his or her employment, it often has a dramatic impact on orders for custody, visitation, and potentially spousal support.
- Other types of restraining orders come into play when a divorce summons is issued and served, covering issues such as out-of-state child removal and unauthorized transfers of property — and we advise our clients accordingly.
