Restraining Orders in Raleigh

Need assistance from a Raleigh criminal lawyer?

Restraining orders can be issued for any number of reasons, but regardless of the reasoning behind a restraining order, this type of legal matter will require lawyer assistance. At Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC, our criminal defense attorneys have worked with many clients on both sides of restraining orders. Whether you are filing a restraining order against a former employee or fighting a restraining order filed by your ex-spouse, a criminal defense lawyer at Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC will do everything possible to make sure your rights are fully protected throughout every step of this process.

Restraining orders and protective orders are issued by court to restrain the conduct of one person in order to protect someone who has been formerly victimized from the activities and abuse of another. The judge determines the length of time the restraining order will be in effect for, and upon the expiration of the restraining order, some clients choose to go back to court to file a second restraining order for another length of time.

Temporary Restraining Orders

Sometimes temporary restraining orders can be issued by court to temporarily restrain a person from committing certain acts, such as domestic violence, and going certain places. If a person fails to show up for a court hearing, a temporary restraining order may be issued. Once the temporary restraining order has been issued, a Raleigh law official will serve the order. Temporary restraining orders are usually effective until another court date can be held to determine the need for a permanent order.

If a restraining order has been issued against you, or if you are considering filing a restraining order against someone, you will need assistance from a seasoned attorney. An experienced Raleigh criminal lawyer can help make sure the rights of both parties are not violated and can help determine the necessity of a restraining order. If a restraining order is being filed against you, you will face restrictions that may interfere with your daily life. In this case, you will most certainly need to have a criminal defense attorney on your side to stand up for rights, freedoms, and future.

My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!...
I came to Kevin with a nasty divorce situation complete with kiddos & an affair (tho not by me!) The whole mess was devastating, emotionally & financially. But in the end, Kevin was money well spent! I have my life back, my kids live with me, & a very nice settlement to top it off. And I must say, it was great seeing my ex on the stand getting caught in his lies! --My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!
