Unfortunately, many relationships end in the most explosive manner. Where violence or threats of violence exist, the court has the power to grant restraining orders to assist individuals in protecting themselves. In such cases, the priority must always be the protection of one’s own safety. It is also important to act quickly because delay can affect your entitlement to such an order. Of course, the lawyers at Wise Scheible Barkauskas have significant experience in obtaining or fighting restraining orders on behalf of our clients.
