Has A Restraining Order Been Issued Against You?
While a restraining order is often issued temporarily, it can have a long-term effect on the receiver. Lasting evidence of a restraining order can show up in a background check and affect important family matters such as child custody and visitation. In some cases, having had a restraining order issued can be used against an individual in a criminal case.
Are you prepared to handle the consequences of a restraining order? The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., can help you fight a restraining order, ultimately protecting your future and your relationship with your family.
