Talk to a Keegan Lawyer about Your Restraining Order
If you have had a restraining order levied against you and you feel that the order was unwarranted, it’s important to speak with a knowledgeable domestic violence attorney from our firm today. Having the guidance of the experienced legal professionals at our firm can make a profound difference in the successful outcome of your case.
In the state of Massachusetts, you have a right to a hearing concerning a temporary restraining order, also known as a 209a. This hearing will be scheduled within a ten day period from the date of the issuance of the temporary restraining order. This hearing will, for the most part, be your only opportunity to contest the restraining order. Once a judge grants a restraining order against you it can be good for up to one year. It’s extremely important that you understand all of the terms of the restraining order in an effort to not accidentally violate any of the terms of the restraining order. A violation of a restraining order will then become a separate charge of its own. If you feel that the restraining order was granted due to evidence that was falsified or incorrect, you may be able to have the restraining order expunged from your record. The proven and experienced legal professionals at our firm can help you with all aspects dealing with a restraining order.
