Denver Restraining Order Attorney
Temporary restraining orders (TRO) and orders of protection (OOP) are used when someone feels threatened or harassed by another individual and seeks to legally restrict that party's ability to approach or communicate with them. OOPs are usually issued in cases of domestic violence by the judge to restrict the accused from contacting the alleged victim until the charges are addressed in court. Someone who feels endangered or harassed by another can petition a judge for a TRO to legally prevent any further contact. A TRO is issued until a formal hearing is held to determine if it should become a permanent. If you need more information about obtaining or contesting a restraining order issued against you call a Denver domestic violence lawyer at the Lancaster Law Office, LLC.
Restraining orders can be requested if you fear another intends to harm or threaten you or your family of if you feel "stalked" by another. We can help you with the paperwork necessary to file your petition and represent you in the hearing. The accused will be given their chance to defend themselves before the order is made permanent. On the other hand, if you have been served with a TRO and wish to contest it, you should also speak to one of our lawyers.

Having a restraining order issued against you can have a number of serious consequences. It may affect your job and it could prevent you from owning or possessing a firearm or getting a hunting license. If you are married or going through a divorce, it can affect your ability to visit or see your children as well as reflect badly on your custody and visitation rights. A person filing for a restraining order does not have to provide any evidence other than a sworn statement they feel threatened. Appearing before the judge to provide clear evidence that disproves such testimony can get such a TRO dismissed and help restore your reputation and freedom.
