As a human, you have the right to live a free life without fear of injury or violence. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you have legal rights to protect yourself. Recent changes in the U.S. domestic violence laws[i] have greatly improved the rights of victims. That’s why you need to obtain legal advice and defense in the case of domestic violence.
Process for Obtaining a Restraining Order
A domestic violence injunction, also known as a restraining order, has a specific process. You need to file a petition to the court of justice who determines whether your case is solid enough for issuance of a temporary injunction. Then, the court schedules a hearing to decide whether to make your temporary injunction permanent or not. At Giovannetti Thurston, PLLC, we help you through the entire process.
