Lawyer for Fighting a Restraining Order in Philadelphia
Has a restraining order been threatened or already issued against you? Let's review the purpose of a restraining order before moving forward...
A Restraining Order is a useful legal tool used by the court to protect a person from another in a situation involving alleged violence, harassment, stalking, etc. The virtue of such an action is transparent, as it serves both the individual(s) and society at large to legally protect a potential victim from a potential assailant. A restraining order may order an individual to cease all contact with the petitioner, including forcing them from a shared domicile and preventing potential contact in society. Essentially a restraining order disallows the individual within a certain area of the petitioner, while imposing strict penalties if the order is violated.
In theory, a restraining order is a wonderful mechanism used to protect those in need. However, it is susceptible to abuse. It is not uncommon for a relative or current/former partner to use the system as a means of aggression or retaliation. Is this what has happened to you? If you believe this is the case then you are at risk of becoming the victim in this case. Do not hesitate in seeking legal counsel to protect you immediately.
The consequences of a false or exaggerated protection via restraining order can be devastating! You may be evicted from your home, forced to surrender any weapons you own, and even lose your job. This is the terrible reality of the system when abused. The court is not meant to be wielded as a weapon by a bitter family member or scorned lover. You should not be subjected to such attacks, especially via the court which is intended to ensure equity, safety, and justice.
