Orange County Restraining Order Defense Lawyers
Criminal Attorneys in Orange County, California
Restraining orders are often issued in cases of
domestic violence, harassment and stalking. If you have been served a restraining
order, you may be prohibited from coming into contact with the alleged victim –
meaning you cannot approach their home or place of employment. You may also be required
to move out of your home, if you share it with the victim, even if you are paying
the rent or mortgage.
Consulting an Orange County criminal
defense lawyer or attorney is the only way that you will have a chance to
have the restraining order lifted. Coffey & Coffey
is a well-established criminal defense law firm located in Newport Beach, California.
Our attorneys handle cases throughout all of Orange County, including Newport Beach,
Westminster, Fullerton, Santa Ana and Laguna Niguel. Additionally, we offer a free case evaluation with a lawyer at
our firm to see how we may be able to work to have your restraining order lifted.
Fighting Restraining Orders in Orange County
When an individual is served a restraining order, he or she will also receive a
form which is an Answer to a Temporary Restraining Order. This form enables the
person to file a response to the accusations in the restraining order. While a person
who has been served a restraining order is not required to work with a lawyer, this
is usually the only way they have hope of successfully fighting a restraining order
– and having it lifted.
There are time constraints involved as well, particularly given the fact that the
sooner an attorney gets involved, the better. By consulting an Orange County defense
attorney or lawyer as soon as one has been served notice of a restraining order,
the attorney can begin building a case in their favor. This includes preparation
and filing the Answer to a Temporary Restraining Order within 10 to 20 days before
the hearing which is held regarding the restraining order.
