Will a restraining order help protect you from violence?

Domestic violence is a horrible thing to have to deal with. It can come in a few forms, ranging from financial abuse to violent acts. As someone dealing with this situation, you should know that you don't have to go through it alone. You are resilient and can get through a divorce or separation with the protection of the court.

In most cases of domestic violence, it's best to seek a restraining order. These are temporary initially, but when you go to the court, you'll be able to ask for the restraining order to be made permanent if you are in danger.

Why is the use of a restraining order so important?

The restraining order, also known as a personal protective order, makes sure that the other party is aware that they may not be with you or near you at any time other than in court or when designated by the order. It gives clear guidelines on what is or is not acceptable.

On top of this, a personal protective order is the first court-ordered documentation of you taking action to prevent harm from coming to you in your relationship. The courts may need to see these documents during a divorce, especially when there are questions as to where a child should live or about how to divide property. You'll also want to retain any police reports you have from domestic violence calls or incidents.

Your attorney can help you get the protection you need right away. You don't have to be alone or struggle to get out of a dangerous situation.
