Protecting You From A Controlling Or Abusive Partner

If you have been physically harmed or feel threatened by your spouse, ex-spouse, partner, the parent of your minor child or someone you lived with within the past two years, you have a right to obtain a restraining order against that person.

A restraining order will prohibit that person from contacting you or coming near you. We can also arrange to have the restraining order give protection to your children as well. At the Law Office of Stephen J. Bedor, we want to help protect you and your future from a controlling or abusive partner.

Representing Those Falsely Accused Of Domestic Violence

Restraining orders are valuable tools that can help protect victims of physical abuse. Sadly, however, these are frequently misused to gain an advantage in divorce or custody disputes.

If you have been served with a restraining order, you could face serious consequences that may include everything from jail time to unequal treatment regarding family law issues such as custody and visitation. A record of domestic violence can make it difficult to obtain a job or to be accepted into some educational programs.

If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence or stalking, it is extremely important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. We will request a hearing to challenge the restraining order. Unless the request is made within 30 days from the date you were served with the order, the order will become permanent.
