An injunction is sometimes also called a restraining order, stay away order, protection order or order of protection. An attorney experienced in handling these cases can help formulate strategies to present your case to the Court. Whether the client is filing for an injunction or has been served an injunction, all evidence for the case must be presented at the hearing which is really a trial.  That trial can be scheduled in as little as two (2) weeks from the date of filing the injunction or merely days from the service of the injunction upon the Respondent. This is a very short time frame.

Sometimes an injunction or restraining order is filed in a marriage headed to divorce or dissolution. Sometimes an injunction or restraining order is filed because a criminal charge such as battery, stalking, domestic battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon or assault with a firearm has also been alleged. A person with a combination of an injunction with a divorce or a criminal charge or especially if all three types of cases are pending at once, should not wait to find help.  Click or call:
