Restraining Order Guidance

Restraining orders save lives and keep good people out of the wrong hands. While never guaranteed, restraining orders are smart to obtain if you have any worries or doubts about something or someone. Choosing the right legal help for a Seattle Restraining Order is fundamental to your success in the courtroom and your safety on the streets.

Although not all protection orders are to keep someone away, there are other protective actions the courts will take. For example, the judge might demand a parent attend drug or alcohol meetings in order to obtain visitation of a child. Falling under Family Law, there are many scenarios that prompt interest in restraining orders.

If you have had a restraining order placed against you, you can take action to protect yourself. If you find the charges outrageously unfair, you have rights and we are happy to assist you. The proper defense can change the entire state of your case. Not only do restraining orders keep one away from a certain individual, but they can also ban one from certain public properties.

While any restraining order starts off as being temporary, after the case has been settled it can then be transferred into a permanent order if serious enough. When children are involved, this will be decided in Superior Court; in all cases the initial court date is typically two weeks prior to the final decision. Both parties will have the opportunity to share their sides of the story in court.
