Obtaining a Restraining Order

If you are in fear of danger to yourself or child, you can request a restraining order by completing an affidavit at your local courthouse. From there, the court can issue a temporary restraining order.

Whether or not the temporary restraining order will be extended is decided at a second hearing. At this point, the court will evaluate eyewitness testimony and other evidence.

The benefit of a restraining order is that the police and court are put on notice of the dangerous person, which will lend concrete legitimacy to any future actions against that person. At Moyer Law, PC, we will stand by your side throughout the entire process and make sure your voice is heard.

Objecting to a Restraining Order
