Restraining Orders — Free Consultations

North Carolina law allows a person to obtain a restraining order against another person when he or she believes his or her safety is at risk.

It is common for a person to file for a restraining order when there have been past fights, threats or accusations of stalking or harassment. It is also common for parties in divorce and child custody cases to seek a restraining order against the other spouse or parent. Sometimes this is done out of fear, and sometimes it is done out of spite or jealousy.

Types Of Restraining Orders And Types Of Motivation

North Carolina judges can issue two main types of restraining orders: a 50B, which applies to situations in which there is a previous romantic relationship between the parties, and a 50C, which can be issued against a friend, acquaintance, co-worker or even a stranger.

The reality is that not all restraining orders are based on the truth. If you are the subject of a restraining order, you have legal rights. An experienced lawyer can help you protect those rights.
