Restraining Orders

Restraining orders have a variety of purposes. They attempt to prevent someone previously accused of domestic violence from:

  • Making contact with another person (the alleged victim)
  • Being in view of that person from a certain distance
  • Visiting places visited by the person, such as office, workplace or a place where people gather
  • On occasion, even being present at one's own home

This list should give you some idea of how seriously the law enforcement and our justice system take the subject of domestic violence. To basically delete an alleged offender from the life of the victim can be a harsh but necessary step.
