Domestic violence restraining orders

Domestic violence restraining orders.

FACLC will help a victim of domestic violence obtain a restraining order, regardless of income or ability to pay. We prepare the paperwork to obtain a temporary restraining order, and will accompany her or him to court for the "permanent" restraining order hearing.

If you think you need a restraining order, contact our office to complete the intake form (you do not need to wait for our Wednesday clinic).

If you have an emergency, contact your local police department to obtain an Emergency Protective Order. If the alleged batterer is charged with a crime, the Criminal Court may issue a criminal protective order.
