Domestic Violence And Restraining Orders

If you are arrested in Colorado for domestic violence, you will be ordered to have no contact with the person who is named as the victim in your criminal case.  This "mandatory restraining order" may also remove you from your home.

 

Orders prohibiting contact may be called “restraining orders”, “protection orders” or “no contact orders”. Regardless of the name they are given, the effect of these restraining orders can keep you away from your partner, your family, and your home until a judge removes the order or until your domestic violence case comes to an end.

 

Domestic violence cases begin with mandatory restraining orders even for couples who have been married for many years or who are co-parents of children.

Domestic violence cases begin with restraining orders even when the protected party does not want the order.

In addition to damaging the relationship and the family, restraining orders can also be financially devastating when they force a family to separate and pay for two independent residences.

 

An experienced domestic violence defense lawyer can help you approach the court to change or eliminate these domestic violence restraining orders. Unfortunately, it is not always the case that the restraining order will be automatically lifted if you and your partner ask for it. Because of her extensive experience defending domestic violence cases, Nancy Salomone is able to time and structure these requests to maximize the chance that they are granted and that the family can be reunited.
