No person should have to live in fear of domestic violence. If you have been subjected to violence or threats of violence, you may seek a restraining order to protect your safety and obtain legal relief.
If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence and your partner is seeking a restraining order, act immediately to protect your rights. Unfortunately, some individuals make false allegations of abuse to obtain an upper hand in divorce proceedings. If your spouse has sought a restraining order, there is a strong likelihood that he or she is about to file for divorce.
Lake Toback Can Help
For many years, Lake Toback has been known as one of the top divorce and family law firms in Illinois. If you are seeking a restraining order, we can file all necessary court filings and attend all necessary hearings on your behalf.
We can seek a wide range of relief on your behalf. An order for protection (sometimes called an injunction or restraining order) may:
- Prohibit an abuser from making further contact in person, by phone, by email or by other means of communication with the protected party
- Bar an abuser from a shared residence
- Award the protected party temporary possession and legal custody of minor children
- Order an abuser to pay child support
- Order an abuser to give possession of a firearm to local police
If you have been served with a temporary restraining order, do not delay. A party who is served with an emergency order of protection is entitled to request a hearing within a short period of time and may oppose the issuance of an ongoing restraining order at the hearing. Contact our attorneys immediately to protect your rights.
