Fort Collins Restraining Order Lawyer

EFFECTIVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE STRATEGIES
No contact orders, often referred to as restraining orders or protection orders, are imposed as a result of a domestic dispute or domestic argument. The domestic violence statute in Colorado is strict and allows for judges to impose no contact orders for these types of charges, meaning you cannot even speak to the alleged victim. The no contact order may seem severe and not necessary in your case. It is important you understand the legal repercussions of violating a no contact order. Violating these orders can not only be costly, but also carry new criminal charges.

It is important to ensure your rights are protected when dealing with a restraining order. I have been providing vigorous representation to clients in the Fort Collins area for more than 30 years and I have what it takes to advocate your rights through the court process..

Challenging Protection Orders

If an individual is arrested by law enforcement for a domestic violence charge, he or she has to go to jail and must appear in front of judge before being released on bond.

Upon release on bond, the judge will require a protection order with conditions of no contact with the victim. This likely will mean you cannot live at home while the no contact order is in effect. Obviously this can be problematic if you do not have another place to stay. In most cases, no contact orders are issued despite the victim’s wishes. If you are dealing with the consequences of a protection order, I will fight to ensure that your rights are properly upheld.

At Liggett, Johnson & Goodman P.C., I work with the court system, presenting the full story. My goal is to present a compelling case and file a motion addressing the no contact order as soon as possible. I have the ability and legal knowledge to work on having your no contact order lifted or modified.

Using Negotiation and Litigation Skills To Get The Best Results For You

Courts are typically reluctant to lift a no contact order after a recent arrest. After all, after a domestic dispute has escalated into a domestic violence charge, the last thing the courts want to see is another charge. Of course, this doesn’t always accurately portray the situation at hand.

It takes legal experience to put my clients in the best position possible for the judge to understand why a no contact order is not necessary. I want to help you get your life back on track. I will assist you with enrolling in counseling and other proactive activities that can help in getting the no contact order lifted.

It’s important to note that, in some instances, no-contact orders cannot be lifted. If this occurs, we will work with the system to ensure that you get your property back and help you move on with your life in the least disruptive manner possible.
