Protect Yourself And Your Family Against Domestic Abuse
Restraining orders, or orders for protection, can provide some safety and peace of mind for victims of domestic violence, assault and stalking in Minnesota. In general, you can apply for a restraining order for up to two years, which may then be extended if necessary.
A restraining order can prevent the abusive person from being in contact with you, entering your home or workplace, or having contact with your children, among other things. At Ed Shaw Law, we are committed to helping people get the full protection they need in abusive situations. We’ll make sure your restraining order covers the full extent of the protections you need.
Can I Get Restraining Orders To Protect My Children Too?
Parents or guardians may also apply for protective orders on behalf of minor children. If you are worried that someone poses a danger to both you and your children, you may want to consult a lawyer about protective actions you should take in addition to filing for restraining orders. For example, you may need to modify a custody arrangement.
