How Can I Defend Myself Against a Restraining Order?

The ramifications of a restraining order are serious, often prohibiting the alleged abuser from seeing their children, owning firearms, and living in the family home. However, you do have rights which allow you to challenge the accusations against you and defend your innocence. It is imperative that you retain an attorney the moment you are served with a notice of the restraining order.

Your attorney can help you build your case by:

  • Gathering physical evidence related to any incidents mentioned in the restraining order
  • Assembling documents or records that verify your whereabouts, such as emails and GPS records
  • Making a list of possible witnesses who have information about the alleged incidents

Domestic violence accusations often turn into “he said, she said,” and this tends to work against the person being accused. The more evidence you have, the better your chances of defending yourself in a courtroom. This is why you need Goldblatt, Marquette & Rashba, PC.
