Helping You File for a Restraining Order
At Andrew M. Smith, P.A., we help clients to pursue restraining orders, also known as petitions for injunction for protection against domestic violence. Abuse does not have to occur and must never be tolerated. Even if there have only been threats of violence, is it still imperative to secure a protective order.
Telling Your Story and Getting to the Facts
Andrew M. Smith, the founder of our firm, will represent you in court and help you tell your story. If the proper burden of proof is met, a judge will grant a temporary restraining order. Approximately two weeks later, a hearing is held at which the court will either extend or dissolve the domestic violence injunction. Our job is to aggressively pursue your rights and hold the abuser accountable for their actions against you.
