Domestic Violence Restraining Order Information
Domestic Violence Restraining Order
To obtain a domestic violence restraining order, the petitioner must prove their case beyond a preponderance of the evidence. This means the evidence should convince the judge by over 50%.
Having an attorney will help you get past the 50% threshold whether you’re asking for the restraining order or defending yourself from one. An attorney can assist you in presenting the relevant evidence in an organized fashion and to concisely articulate your argument.
Having experience in front of the particular Judge is always helpful. Being in front of a specific judge enough times will allow the attorney to know the Judge’s personal biases and preferences to help shape your argument.
These types of restraining orders are always important because obtaining one for the Petitioner can lead to peace of mind and moving on with life without worry for personal safety. It is also important for the Respondent because a frivolous claim can lead to undue hardship for something that never occurred.
