If you fear for your safety due to domestic abuse, it’s important to know your legal options. My firm works hard to protect those who have been abused or fear that they may be abused by a person they know. I help clients in the Cape May County area and throughout South Jersey obtain a restraining order against anyone they currently or formerly lived with whom they believe will hurt them. These orders place restrictions on accused abusers so that they are not in a position to harm you. These orders are issued to prohibit someone who has threatened you with harm from having any contact with you. If you have been unfairly accused of domestic violence, I will strenuously oppose the entry of a restraining order against you.
Restraining orders are issued to protect victims of abuse by keeping the accused abuser away from the abused. These orders provide relief that may include:
If your partner seeks a restraining order against you, the order can have significant consequences for you. You may be removed from your home, your weapons may be confiscated, your children may be permitted only limited time with you and you could be required to pay money to your spouse or partner on a regular basis. If your accuser unfairly accused you of domestic violence, it is essential that you oppose a restraining order in court. Restraining orders, once entered, can be very difficult to dismiss so it is essential to defend against the order before it is made final.
At my firm, I provide skilled and prompt help to clients who are either asking the court to grant a restraining order or are fighting against one. Call today at 609-465-9910 to schedule a consultation at my office.
