Dealing with a restraining order? This document can force you to refrain from approaching or contacting an alleged victim who feels threatened. An order can be granted by a court even if no violence has taken place! That is why it is so imperative that you take action to protect your reputation and your rights.
If a Civil Stalking Protection Order or any other restraining order has been filed against you, be sure you have our Cleveland domestic violence attorney standing behind you so you have a fair opportunity to preserve your freedom.
What Happens with a Restraining Order/Order of Protection?
In Ohio, restraining orders are usually known as orders of protection. If your accuser obtains a temporary restraining order against you, a hearing will be scheduled in Domestic Relations Court or Common Pleas Court to figure out if there is good reason to make the order permanent.
A domestic violence restraining order can force you to:
- Move out of your home
- Refrain from purchasing or possessing a firearm
- Keep away from the alleged victim, your child, and related family members
- Pay domestic support
- Stay away from the claimant's job, your child's school or daycare, or other notable areas
A domestic violence conviction can ruin your life and relationships with your family. You have a right to a fair trial if you are accused of domestic violence and no one should have a restraining order filed against them unjustly.
