How to fight a restraining order: Know your rights, fight for your freedom
Orders of protection (more commonly referred to as restraining orders) are intended to protect victims of abuse and their children. In practice, though, restraining orders—especially when based on false allegations or exaggerated threats of danger—can unduly restrict your rights and freedoms.
Restraining orders set limits on what you, the accused, can do and where you can go. Orders of protection can prohibit contact with your children and loved ones. They can even restrict access to your home. And any restraining order against you will be on your record for all future employers to see.
You have the right to defend yourself against the conditions of the restraining order and the credibility of the allegations against you. Exercising your right to defend yourself with the help of legal counsel is your best bet for modifying, appealing or dissolving a restraining order against you.
The attorneys at Hipskind & McAninch will help you tell your side of the story.
We know how to fight restraining orders. We’ve worked on both sides—seeking orders of protection, and defending against them. We know how the other side will build their case, and can counter their every argument.
”Brady [McAninch] worked over the weekend to ensure he was prepared and then prepare for time in court. He does not “sugar coat” the situation, but instead sets a very realistic expectation. Brady covered the legal aspect of the case but also prepared me for the emotional side including prep on behavior, attire and tone necessary to ensure a successful outcome. Of course the end result is important—a WIN in a tough to win case!! I would recommend Brady and the firm to anyone looking for the attorney who will treat you as you want to be treated.
