When dealing with domestic violence cases, there are circumstances where the defendant is being falsely accused of domestic violence. In this situation there can be a temporary restraining order issued against the defendant which can have devastating effects over the divorce action and/or custody and parenting time with the children.   

If false allegations are made and a Temporary Restraining Order is issued, the consequences can include but are not limited to, having to vacate the home, the defendant being arrested, suspension of child visitation, an obligation to pay child support, limitations on parenting time, and the defendant being obligated to other temporary payments.

It is important that once false allegations are made and a Temporary Restraining Order is issued, the Defendant is ready to defend his or her innocence by retaining counsel that is knowledgeable and skillful. All attempts to help prove his or her innocence should be explored which include submission of evidence in the form of pictures, text messages, and the calling of witnesses, including police officers.
