Alpharetta Restraining Orders Lawyer
Divorce brings a lot of emotions to the surface, and it’s important to express them in healthy ways. When one partner loses control, though, it may be time to request a restraining order, especially in cases of domestic abuse. A temporary restraining order can put a halt to stalking, placing you under surveillance, or contacting you with harassing or intimidating remarks. If you reside in Georgia and have questions regarding Alpharetta restraining orders, the Teiger Law Center attorneys can provide you with the answers you need concerning your particular case.
Alpharetta Restraining Orders Attorney
When your angry spouse refuses to leave the home in a high asset divorce case, a hearing before a judge in civil court will decide if your spouse moves or you do. If you are the person ordered to vacate, a restraining order may help you to retrieve your personal property without confrontation. There are times when a spouse will decide not to press charges when a family violence protection order has been issued, but the prosecutor may continue with the case in criminal court, forcing you to testify anyway. There are also times when a disgruntled spouse may retaliate by seeking a restraining order under false claims.
