Talk to a Keegan Lawyer About Your Temporary Restraining Order
If you have had a temporary restraining order levied against you, it’s important to act quickly to procure the services of a knowledgeable domestic violence lawyer from our firm. The time to defend yourself in a restraining order case is during the temporary restraining order phase, and the hearing for this action will be held within ten days of the issuance of the temporary restraining order.
In order for an individual to obtain a temporary restraining order or 209a, the plaintiff must show the judge that there is a domestic or family relationship and that there is a fear of imminent danger or harm from the other person in this relationship. This order can be given ex parte, which means that only one party has to be present for this to occur. Once the judge grants the temporary restraining order, a full hearing will be set within ten days. It is vitally important that you appear at this hearing, and have skilled legal representation to advocate for your cause. If a restraining order should be granted against you, it is essential that you understand all of the terms and be certain to comply with all of the terms in order to avoid a restraining order violation charge. This is your one opportunity to defend yourself against a restraining order which will go on your permanent record.
