A restraining order will restrict you from making contact with a partner or spouse or returning home. You will be unable to go to certain locations, be within a certain distance of your partner, or to frequent places that he or she is known to go. Violating a restraining order will lead to being taken into custody pending charges for the violation.
If you want to have a restraining order dismissed, contact me, attorney Ryan E. Gilbert. I have practiced criminal law and family law for nearly two decades, and I can assist you to resolve this dangerous legal problem.
Emergency Order, Temporary Restraining Order, Final Restraining Order
A spouse or partner may have falsely accused you of domestic violence which has led to a restraining order, restricting your actions. An emergency order may have been issued, or you could be dealing with a TRO, or temporary restraining order, which can later be extended to a final restraining order.
Any accusation of assault, stalking or harassment will give the court reason to issue a restraining order, even if you are completely innocent. Once the order is in place, any violation will create serious problems for you, including being taken into custody and charged for the violation. Your innocence is not enough; the restraining order must be dismissed through a legal process, and I can help you resolve this serious matter.
Requesting to Dismiss a Restraining Order
You have the right to request the dismissal of a restraining order.
In order to be successful, there are several issues that must be established, including:
- That there is "good cause" for removal of the order
- That there has been a change in circumstances that makes the order unnecessary
- That the court must be provided with a transcript
The reason the order was issued will need to be reviewed when making a decision. The judge will have certain requirements to grant a dismissal of a restraining order. I understand all of the issues the court faces when asked to grant a dismissal, and I am prepared to act for you in this urgent legal matter.
