A Lawyer Explains How to Fight a Restraining Order

1. Hire a Relevant Attorney

Lawyer Wahoo NEBased on the circumstances of the restraining order, you’ll need to hire a lawyer who specializes in such cases. If it’s related to a divorce or domestic dispute, you need someone who practices family law. If it’s a business-related matter, a business law attorney might be appropriate. Having an attorney with niche expertise will help you build a stronger case and improve the chances of the order being dropped.

2. Collect Evidence

At your hearing, your lawyer will need to disprove the charges against you, so evidence is essential. Statements from witnesses, text messages and other written materials, and further details can be extremely effective in clarifying the situation and building your character, so take extra measures to create a compelling defense.
