Over 60 Years of Combined Experience

A restraining order is a court order that prohibits a party from contacting another party. Restraining orders are often sought by individuals who have been victims of violent crimes, such as assault, stalking, and harassment. A restraining order can be temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances of the case and the type of restraining order that was granted by the court.

Whether you have been the victim of a crime and have been granted a restraining order or you have had a restraining order filed against you, it is important to understand what the order says and what it prohibits. Denver Criminal and Injury Attorneys can help you understand your rights and the legal options available to you.

Criminal and Civil Restraining/Protection Orders

On many alleged Domestic Violence cases, there will be a separately brought civil restraining order case.   These cases start with a request for a Temporary Restraining Order in which the Petitioner goes to the Court to request the Order and the Respondent is not involved or even initially notified.  The cases then involve a request to make that TRO a PRO, or Permanent Restraining Order.  This is when we generally get involved -- in the hearing to seek to keep that Temporary Order from being made a Permanent Order.

What Is a Restraining Order?

A restraining order can be issued by a judge when a person has been the victim of a crime. The purpose of a restraining order is to protect the victim from further violence or harassment by the perpetrator. A restraining order can prohibit a person from contacting the victim in any way.

These types of orders include:

  • Protective orders
  • No contact orders
  • Stay-away orders
  • Move-away orders

The court will grant a restraining order if it believes that the victim has a credible fear of harm. The restraining order will be issued in the form of a court order. The order will be filed with the court's records and will be enforceable by law enforcement officers. A restraining order will generally have a term of two years.
