Essex County Restraining Order Attorney
Depending on your situation, our attorneys can help you to pursue a restraining order to prevent your abuser from entering your home, or having contact with you or your children. When appropriate, we can also help you pursue criminal charges relating to child abuse, spousal abuse or sexual violence.
A temporary restraining order becomes effective immediately after approval by a judge. They also remain effective until it is converted to a permanent restraining order after a trial.. Because of this, restraining orders are valuable legal tools for victims who need to protect themselves.
Although a restraining order is not a guarantee of safety, it can deter the other party against violence and disruptive contacts. A restraining order can also create the legal foundation for prosecution if the order is violated.
