Restraining Orders

Advocacy from a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Boston, MA

The penalties for failing to comply with a restraining order could be severe. No matter how earnest or honest your motives may have been, if you are found to be guilty of a restraining order violation, you could face serious consequences. In the event that you have been arrested for a restraining order violation, consult the legal counsel of a Boston criminal defense attorney from our firm immediately.

Understanding Your Restraining Order

Restraining orders can be issued for a variety of reasons. While some reasons may be founded on evidence and valid, others can be based on unfounded allegations used to get the upper hand in heated domestic arguments. For example, some former spouses may attempt to file a restraining order in order to prevent another spouse from gaining visitation or custody rights with children from in a former marriage. You may have been trying to visit your children, but due to a misinterpretation of a restraining order, you may be facing serious criminal allegations that could further prevent you from visiting your children. Restraining orders establish a specific distance within which parties can be in range of one another and prohibit contact between the parties acknowledged in the restraining order, including:

  • Physical contact
  • Direct contact
  • Indirect contact, such as calling, texting, emailing, sending mail, sending anonymous letters, instant messaging, or leaving a voicemail

At The Criminal Defense Group, our criminal defense lawyers know how frustrating and painful a restraining order can be. In instances in which a parent is prohibited from seeing or even talking to his or her child, a restraining order can cause serious heartache. It can take very little action to violate a restraining order without even knowing it, and now you may be facing the legal consequences.
