Restraining Order Guidance

Restraining orders save lives and keep good people out of the wrong hands. While never guaranteed, restraining orders are smart to obtain if you have any worries or doubts about something or someone. Choosing the right legal help for a Seattle Restraining Order is fundamental to your success in the courtroom and your safety on the streets. Although not all protection orders are to keep someone away, there are other protective actions the courts will take. For example, the judge might demand a parent attend drug or alcohol meetings in order to obtain visitation of a child. Falling under Family Law, there are many scenarios that prompt interest in restraining orders.

If you have had a restraining order placed against you, you can take action to protect yourself. If you find the charges outrageously unfair, you have rights and we are happy to assist you. The proper defense can change the entire state of your case. Not only do restraining orders keep one away from a certain individual, but they can also ban one from certain public properties.

While any restraining order starts off as being temporary, after the case has been settled it can then be transferred into a permanent order if serious enough. When children are involved, this will be decided in Superior Court; in all cases the initial court date is typically two weeks prior to the final decision. Both parties will have the opportunity to share their sides of the story in court.

*A lawyer may charge a flat fee for specified legal services, which constitutes complete payment for those services and is paid in whole or in part in advance of the lawyer providing the services. If agreed to in advance in a writing signed by the client, a flat fee is the lawyer's property on receipt, in which case the fee shall not be deposited into a trust account under Rule 1.15A. The written fee agreement shall, in a manner that can easily be understood by the client, include the following: (i) the scope of the services to be provided; (ii) the total amount of the fee and the terms of payment; (iii) that the fee is the lawyer's property immediately on receipt and will not be placed into a trust account; (iv) that the fee agreement does not alter the client's right to terminate the client-lawyer relationship; and (v) that the client may be entitled to a refund of a portion of the fee if the agreed-upon legal services have not been completed.
