Harassment Restraining Orders

We provide representation regarding all forms of restraining orders. The firm represents persons who desire to obtain a Court order as a result of domestic violence. It also defends persons who have had false or exaggerated claims made against them. When you are being harassed, it can dominate your entire life. If you are constantly worried about running into the person who is harassing you or if you have changed your own habits because of the actions of that person, it may be time to explore the option of filing a petition for a restraining order. If that time has come, you need to understand that the rules of civil procedure and evidence apply to the proceedings. It is important that you consult with an attorney who is experienced in representing individuals who have been involved in the restraining order process. Attorney Kurt J. Knuesel routinely represents both people who file for restraining orders and people who are named in those petitions. In either instance, Attorney Knuesel has extensive experience guiding clients through the process to obtain the result that they are looking for. In many cases, Attorney Knuesel has represented clients who have been falsely accused in a petition for a restraining order. The reasons behind falsification of these types of petitions are many. It is not unusual for a party to a divorce proceeding to try to use the restraining order process to gain the upper hand in a custody battle or the divorce itself. In other cases, a former significant other with an axe to grind may try to take out their aggressions by filing a restraining order. In either case, it is imperative that the party against whom the order is sought takes immediate action to ensure their right to due process. If you fail to respond in a timely manner, you may lose the right to be heard at all with regard to the allegations that are contained in the petition. An attorney with experience in these types of proceedings can help to guide you through the process to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are given a fair chance to refute the allegations that have made against you. Whether you are in need of the protection that a restraining order offers or you have been named by someone else in a petition for a restraining order, call Knuesel Law Firm today to discuss your rights, the process, and your next step. In addition to being open each day during regular business hours, the Firm maintains an after-hour and weekend telephone number to better serve those that are in need of immediate assistance.
