A Domestic Violence Restraining Order is a temporary court order that a judge will issue for an initial 15-21 days for an alleged victim of domestic violence. On the next court date, the judge will decide whether or not to make the order permanent. If the judge decides to grant the victim a permanent restraining order, it could last for up to five years.


What Do You Do If You Have Been Served With A Restraining Order?

If you have received a restraining order, you have the right to file a response to the allegations made by the other party. You have 20 days to file this response.
If you want to contest a restraining order, you will need a competent and experienced restraining order attorney. The attorneys at Wallin & Klarich are knowledgeable about the law and skilled in all courts.
