The time sensitivity of a restraining order or temporary restraining order requires the accompaniment, on the court date that follows its notification, of an experienced Los Angeles attorney to represent the person who has enforced or received the order.
The Harris Family Law Group can guide you through the court session that subsequently results in its issuance. These orders are short-term responses that result from one party convincing a judge that irreparable harm will be suffered should he or she forgo the short-term injunction. This order is usually enforced for two to three days before the judge requires a court appointment to hear both sides of the argument that resulted in the issuance of the order.
Our Los Angeles restraining order lawyer has represented both sides of the court order, assisting individuals who need the protection and those who have been served. No matter which side of the courtroom we will appear on, our attorney is committed to providing his legal representation as a partnership. We want to understand the circumstances behind the order completely, which is why we offer free consultations to ensure your case is evaluated completely. When the court date arrives, we will provide you with the best representation possible to either enforce an extended stay of the restraining order, or have it lifted where there is no basis for it to exist.
At Harris Law Group, our Los Angeles attorney has witnessed and represented a number of parties pursuing their protective rights through the courts using this tactic. Anyone may apply for a restraining order as long as he or she can prove irreparable or imminent harm will result otherwise. There are a number of legal definitions for the word “harm”, and each is interpreted differently by a judge who is taking the word of only one party in this matter. A court date is issued quickly so the other party is able to respond to the allegations before the judge.
Irreparable harm can mean:
No matter the presented cause, or what the result of the order is, the initial order cannot be appealed by the party served with the notice. The matter must be considered a binding, legal order by the court and cannot be infringed upon in any way. Once the two parties meet in the courtroom, the decision will be made to extend or overrule the judgment. As your attorney, Mr. Harris will work tirelessly to ensure a positive outcome — no matter which side of the courtroom we are on.
Mr. Harris is an exceptional Los Angeles restraining order attorney who is committed to protecting your rights. There are only two stances in these cases, and we effectively represent both as a result of our experience in this legal field.
"I came to Mr. Harris' services while in the midst of a not so pleasant separation. Mr. Harris walked me through each step of the divorce process, provided mediation when needed, and helped throughout the negotiations. Not once did I ever feel that I didn't know where my case was at in the process. Mr. Harris kept me informed and up-to-date on my case. He made sure that my best interest was always in consideration. As well, he would let me know if my request was not realistic or the best choice for an amicable situation and would provide alternate solutions that were reasonable and turned out to result in a much better outcome. It is without any reservation that I highly recommend his services."- Michelle
