Domestic Violence

Tritt & Tritt understands that being in a domestic violence situation can be frightening and isolating.  We want to help you be safe from violence and to be secure.  Do you qualify for a domestic violence restraining order?

 

A domestic violence restraining order is a court order that helps protect people from abuse or threats of abuse from someone they have a close relationship with.

A person has abused (or threatened to abuse) you

AND

You have a close relationship with that person; you are:

  • Married or registered domestic partners
  • Divorced or separated
    Dating or used to date
  • Living together or used to live together (more than roommates)
  • Parents together of a child
  • OR
  • Closely related (parent, child, brother, sister, grandmother, grandfather, in-law).

If you are a parent and your child is being abused, you can also file a restraining order on behalf of your child to protect your child (and you and other family members). If your child is 12 or older, he or she can file the restraining order on his or her own.

If you do not qualify for a domestic violence restraining order, there are other kinds of orders you can ask for:

Your attorney at Tritt & Tritt can best advise you on what to do if you are being harassed or if you need help responding to a restraining order filed against you.

Civil harassment restraining order (can be used for neighbors, roommates, coworkers, or more distant family members like cousins, uncle or aunt, etc.). Find more information on getting a civil harassment restraining order.

Workplace violence restraining order (filed by an employer to protect an employee from violence, stalking, or harassment by another person)

You can file the restraining order against any person whether you have a close relationship with them or not.  The person may be a stranger, family member, girlfriend, boyfriend, or friend. It is against anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable through their behavior like physical abuse, too many phone calls, harassment, and threatening actions.  When you feel as if your life and/or the lives of your family members are threatened, then it is time to get this order.
