Are you suffering from abuse at the hands of your husband or domestic partner? If so, you may be able to find relief by requesting a restraining order from the court. Once you have a restraining order against your abusive partner, they will not be able to come near you, threaten you, or even contact you in some cases without facing serious legal penalties. The process is detailed, however, so do not hesitate to consult with a Pasadena family law attorney as soon as possible to take the first step in defending yourself and/or your children from further abuse.
If your situation is dangerous for you or your children, an attorney from our firm can help you receive a temporary order from the court to protect you while you file for a restraining order. In order to obtain a restraining order, you must fill out various court forms and submit them to the court. You will then serve your papers on the restrained individual and will go to court for a hearing on the matter. A judge will then make a decision whether or not you will be granted a restraining order. The key to success throughout this process is to have a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer by your side, so call the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer right away.
