Protective & Restraining Orders Defense in Norwalk, CT
Defending Clients Against Restraining Orders and Domestic Violence Allegations in Fairfield County
Protective orders and restraining orders can be initiated for any number of reasons. A heated argument that got out of control, an empty threat, or even a bitter divorce or custody battle are just some of the possibilities. Regardless of the reason, the end result is always the same: you are separated from your loved ones, unable to make or initiate any form of contact. The distinguished domestic violence lawyers at the Law Offices of Michael R. Corsello, LLC can help defend you against these orders. We can also work to help you dissolve or modify protective orders so that you can have a chance at reconciling with your family.
Restraining and Protective Orders in Stamford and Norwalk
Efforts to protect alleged domestic violence victims have led to the enhanced and often extreme handling of any alleged or suspected family violence case. If, for example, you and your partner or ex-partner engage in an argument and the authorities are called, you may be arrested, even if no physical altercation or injury occurred. On the following court day, the judge may enter a restraining order, with or without the request or the consent of your partner or ex-partner. Once in place, this order prohibits you from contacting your partner or ex-partner. In some circumstances, it may even ban you from having contact with your children.
Alternatively, a restraining order or protective order may be issued against you by your ex-partner or ex-spouse, even if no prior arrest has been made. In certain circumstances, this order can be granted without your presence or knowledge. Though you will be notified once the order is in place, this emergency issuance does not give you the chance to tell your side of the story before the order is put into place.
Violating any of these orders – even those that were entered without your knowledge – can result in criminal charges and additional consequences. For help fighting these orders, and for assistance with any other associated domestic violence charges, consult with our experienced Connecticut domestic violence defense lawyers.
