Domestic violence between family members may lead to a restraining order. Little or no evidence is needed when a loved one claims that you committed physical, emotional or psychological abuse. An arrest does not even have to take place nor does a pending charge have to be filed. The court can still issue a restraining order.
If you believe that a protective order was improperly entered against you following an arrest for domestic violence, you need to take immediate action. Protect your rights with the help of the attorneys at Rome McGuigan, P.C.
