Protecting the Rights of Spouses on Both Sides of Restraining Order Cases
Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders are essential to protecting the safety of people who are in danger of harm. Both of these orders provide certain protections to the victims by restricting the abuser's access to them. Both the victims and alleged abusers have rights that need to be protected in these situations, and it is important that they are handled by a qualified Minnesota family law attorney.
At the law firm of Askvig & Johnson, PLLP , we represent clients on both sides of these cases. We help victims of abuse seek the protection they need, and we represent alleged abusers who have been served with an Order for Protection or Harassment Restraining Order. In either case, we pursue every legal option available in an effort to resolve the matter in a way that benefits our client.
Order for Protection
An Order for Protection is issued in cases of domestic violence when abuse is alleged between two people who share a significant relationship such as a married or divorced couple, a couple that has a child together, a couple that has previously lived together, or parent and child. The order forbids the alleged abuser from committing any type of physical, verbal or emotional abuse. It also forbids any kind of contact with the alleged victims.
Ramsey County Harassment Restraining Order Attorney
Harassment Restraining Orders can be obtained when a person makes repeated acts that cause the alleged victim to feel intimidated or threatened. These acts can include stalking, actions that imply the person's intent to harm you or your property, harassing phone calls, texts, social media posts, letters or packages. In most cases, Harassment Restraining Orders are issued against non-relatives. They order the individual to stop harassing you and to stop all contact with you.
