What can a restraining order do? It can restrict the actions of an allegedly abusive person by prohibiting him/her from contacting, harassing, or coming near a protected individual (or individuals). Depending on the type of court injunction that is filed, an order for protection can:
Restraining orders may be appropriate in a multitude of situations—domestic violence, stalking or cyber-stalking, dating violence, sexual violence and repeat violence–, but acquiring an injunction for the right type of protection order is something best left to an attorney with experience in these types of cases.
For more than 22 years, attorney Stuart House has assisted the victims of domestic abuse in South Florida. Whether the abuse takes the form of domestic violence, stalking, cyber-stalking, dating violence, sexual violence, or repeat violence he can effectively help you secure the appropriate injunctive relief to protect you.
Sadly, the procedures put in place to protect legitimate victims of violence and illegal harassment are often subject to abuse by those willing to lodge false allegations in an effort to obtain an unfair advantage in other types of family law litigation, most often in divorce proceedings, and typically to obtain exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence or temporary exclusive “custody” of the minor children. This misuse of the process not only cheapens the claims of legitimate victims of abuse, but also poses an unjustifiable threat to the rights of the target of the false allegations, and often presents the specter of devastating consequences including potential loss of employment. The best solution when confronted with these types of false allegations is to retain skilled and experienced counsel to represent you. Attorney House zealously defends clients who are the target of false allegations of abuse or violence and stands ready to help you have a falsely obtained restraining order overturned.
