Restraining Orders

Restraining Orders can prevent an individual from nearly any activity that might harm you, including emptying bank accounts, selling property, canceling credit cards, harassing telephone calls, diverting mail and other similar activities. Restraining orders are only issued in conjunction with some type of civil suit.

They are intended to keep the status quo until the civil suit is heard or settled by the Court. Restraining orders are most commonly sought in connection with a suit for divorce. You should seek private legal counsel for assistance.
