Can I Contest a Restraining Order Request?
Depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your situation, you could be facing a request that would bar you from having contact with the protected person, bar you from going anywhere near the protected individual’s school, home, place of work, and/or children’s school, and/or bar you from having a firearm in your possession while the order remains in effect.
Depending on where you are in the process, there may be a temporary restraining order in effect until a specific court date or there may be a more permanent order in place. If ANY (temporary or not) restraining order is currently in effect that concerns you, do NOT violate it. If you need to retrieve possessions, navigate a complex child custody situation, visit a place you are currently prohibited from entering, etc. connect with an Oakland, CA restraining order lawyer at our firm so that we can advise you of how to successfully handle the situation at hand without violating the restraining order currently in place. The consequences of violating that order are not worth the risk. Do not so much as send the protected person an email or ask a friend to “talk to them for you” if an order is in place without discussing your plan of action with us first.
We may be able to successfully contest a restraining order request or modify a request to make the consequences associated with the order more manageable. However, it will be harder to do so successfully if you violate the existing order in any way. If a hearing is set, it is important that you connect with our firm as quickly as possible so that we can file a response on your behalf before your hearing occurs.
