Monmouth County Restraining Order Lawyer
A restraining order is a legal injunction that states that a person must maintain a certain distance from someone else, under penalty of law. Typically, restraining orders are used when one person is abused or threatened by another, whether in a marriage or other domestic arrangement, though they may be used at other times as well. There are several reasons why filing a restraining order can be helpful, especially if you are going through a difficult divorce or are a victim of domestic abuse.
The Importance of Restraining Orders
A restraining order can be an important protection for anyone who feels threatened or suffers abuse at the hands of someone else. This court order gives a person legally enforceable protection and offers the following benefits:
- Prevention of contact, physical or communicative
- Protection of any children involved
- Legal enforcement options if violations occur
These benefits have led many people to file for restraining orders, particularly if they are seeking to escape from a nasty or abusive relationship. An experienced lawyer can help you file for a restraining order if you feel threatened so that you can return to your normal lifestyle without worrying about your health and safety.
