San Jose Restraining Order Defense Attorneys
If you have been accused of domestic violence in any form, you may have a restraining order taken out against you. These are often referred to as protection orders or orders of protection. The effect of a restraining order can be just as life changing as the criminal charge of domestic violence. You may be ordered not to return to your home, even if you are paying the mortgage or rent for that home. You may be ordered to stay away from your children. Restraining orders can be fought, and an experienced attorney can help.
