Seeking A Restraining Order
When you are concerned about your personal safety and wish to explore legal options that can offer security to you and your family, you may wish to seek a restraining order. Most people think of a restraining order when they wish to stop abusive behavior or harassment by another individual. Washington state has several restraining order options that can address the other party’s threatening behavior, such as a divorce restraining order or a civil anti-harassment order.
Our team can help you determine what no contact order — divorce restraining order or civil anti-harassment order — is a better fit for your needs.
Fighting A Restraining Order
If a restraining order or similar protection order has been placed against you after false accusations of domestic violence, you should talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. It is not uncommon for one spouse to accuse another of abuse or domestic violence in divorce proceedings with the intent of gaining an unfair advantage for child custody or remaining in the family home. If you find yourself in this situation, it is important to seek legal advice to defend against a restraining order and protect your family relationships.
