Is Someone Seeking a Restraining Order Against You?

A restraining order prohibits both parties from making any contact with one another, and it can be extremely disruptive. The order may require you to move out of your house. It could keep you from making essential arrangements for paying shared bills or meeting other shared responsibilities. It can interfere with your time with your children.

It is essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible. A temporary restraining order can be issued very quickly and give you little time to defend yourself. If you don’t act quickly, that temporary protective order could be made permanent.

If you have been served with notice that a temporary restraining order is being sought against you, or if a temporary order has been granted and you need representation at the hearing regarding a more permanent order, David M. Gabriel & Associates can help.

Our law firm will take immediate action to stop the advancement of the case. We will give you honest advice on how to proceed, represent you at the hearings, and seek to have any unjust order denied.
