Reasons to request a restraining order will vary from person to person. Many times a restraining order will be requested if another individual is harassing, or threatening to harm the other individual, or their children. The restraining order is necessary to protect an individual from harm. In order to obtain a restraining order the individual will need to appear in court and present their case in front of a judge. The judge will determine whether their is a substantial claim in order to grant a restraining order.
Restraining orders can vary in duration and terms. If the judge grants the restraining order it will specify the distance that the individual being restrained must keep away. In addition, it will indicate what the repercussions could be if the order is not followed precisely. In order for a family law judge to grant a restraining order you must provide some evidence in the form of documentation, or witnesses to show that you are being harassed, threatened, or meet the additional criteria required to obtain a restraining order. For instance, if you have made police reports, this is an example of documentation that the judge will want to review.
