Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
Handled by Our Restraining Order Lawyers in Roseville

Representing Your Interests in Restraining Order Proceedings
The purpose of a restraining order is not to punish, but to provide protection against future abuse. For that reason, the orders are issued relatively liberally when there are allegations of abuse. Nevertheless, these orders do have serious implications for the rights of the person accused of abuse, and he or she has the opportunity to present a defense.
At our law firm, our attorneys help people who have been abused obtain temporary and permanent restraining orders, and we also defend people who have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence.
Once someone has been served with a restraining order, he or she can be arrested and jailed for violating the order. Nevertheless, a piece of paper clearly does not provide total protection from violence. If you fear retaliation for pursuing a restraining order, we can carefully go over all of your options with you.
Addressing How Domestic Violence Affects Child Custody
Allegations of domestic violence, both true and false, often arise during divorce proceedings and in child custody cases. In recent years, local courts have become concerned about the use of restraining orders to gain an advantage in child custody proceedings. If you are experiencing domestic violence or have been accused of it, we can counsel you on the implications surrounding a pending custody case.
