Restraining Orders Attorneys in Mesa
In Mesa, an order of protection is used specifically when there is a situation threatening a relationship. If a relative, spouse, former spouse, or persons having children together exhibit behaviors of domestic violence, you need our Mesa family law lawyers to assist you with a restraining order. If your threat is immediate, you should call the police.
Domestic violence victims need immediate and effective legal representation. Our AZ Family Law Law Firm will give you options to deal with your situation, then efficiently get the proper documentation and paperwork filed. Our attorneys will advocate on your behalf and guide you through the legal process. Many times, a restraining order will avoid a potentially harmful situation. We see many heated divorces and family law matters that get extremely emotionally driven and intense. Even allegations of domestic abuse are taken very seriously.
Knowing the seriousness of family law legal issues, a restraining order may certainly be used improperly. Sometimes they are used to sway a decision or an outcome of a case. Orders of protections that allege domestic violence may have a devastating effect on someone who is involved in a custody or parental rights battle. So if you believe you have been wrongfully accused of harassment or domestic violence against someone who wants a restraining order against you, we can help.
Getting a Restraining Order in Mesa
An Order of Protection (OP) in mesa is issued by a judge to a victim of domestic violence. This court order states that a person must stay away from the victim and desist with any violence, threat of violence, or any kind of harassment. An individual, to be eligible for an OP, must be a spouse or former spouse, roommate, family member, or someone you have dated or had a relationship with.
The person seeking protection files a petition in a Justice, Municipal, or Superior Court in Arizona. A judge will commonly grant orders if there is reasonable cause to believe the defendant has committed or might commit an act of domestic violence.
Once an OP is issued, the defendant (person named in the OP that is doing the harassing) may request a hearing to contest the restraining order.
An OP is a powerful legal tool, and violating an order does have criminal penalties. AZ Family Law Lawyers provides representation for Mesa residents seeking a restraining order, or anyone who wishes to contest an OP. You have an opportunity to provide evidence in support of your petition, and AZ Family Law Lawyers will help you achieve the best possible desired outcome for your case.
