Restraining Orders in Family Law Cases Denver, CO
Restraining orders can represent an essential form of protection for people who would otherwise run serious risks of victimization through domestic abuse, stalking or harassment. Unfortunately, a restraining order can also take on a life of its own. If you're bound by the terms of a restraining order while a divorce or paternity case is pending, you'll also have a hard time protecting your interests in a parenting time or child custody proceeding.
Call today for Advice About Domestic Abuse Restraining Orders
If you need a lawyer's advice about the best ways to respond to a restraining order, contact the office of Jennifer Anntoinette Rivera & Associates. We can explain your options for terminating or modifying the order. We can also work toward overcoming the strategic and tactical disadvantages that a restraining order can mean for your position on contested family law issues.
It isn't hard to get a restraining order issued against someone else. The court usually only hears just one side of the story before issuing a temporary order, and the person bound will have the chance to deny or explain the complaining person's allegations at a hearing within 14 days. If you don't seek a hearing within that time, the court might turn the temporary restraining order into a permanent restraining order without ever hearing from the defense.
We recommend that you should take full advantage of the chance to present your side of the story as quickly as possible. The mere existence of a restraining order could jeopardize your interests on child custody and visitation issues. You also will be better off without exposure to the risk of violating the restraining order, which is a criminal offense that could land you in jail.
Colorado family law attorney Jennifer Rivera represents people on either side of restraining order proceedings, but she more often represents people who need advice about:
