Securing a Restraining Order

Protection Against Domestic Abuse & More in Birmingham

Restraining orders offer protection when there is a threat of domestic abuse or danger from a spouse or partner. Restraining orders can be issued for any number of reasons, and protect the victim from all contact or communication from the abuser. In the context of divorce, a restraining order can provide a barrier of protection against a dangerous and abusive spouse.

  • Award temporary custody of children to the victim
  • Order limited or no or contact with children
