Protective Orders

Getting a Protection from Abuse (PFA) order is one of the most effective ways to protect domestic violence victims from future abuse. While it is impossible to completely guarantee your safety, a protective order (sometimes called a restraining order) can prevent an abusive spouse or significant other from contacting you in the following ways:

  • By phone, text, or email
  • By waiting outside or entering your home
  • By confronting you at your job, school, or other places where you regularly spend time
  • By making threats
  • By using your bank accounts or selling your property

Ultimately, this will help remove you from a situation where you are subjected to harm on a daily basis.

In Maine, violations of a PFA or restraining order carry serious penalties, including arrest and incarceration.

 Fighting for Domestic Violence Victims

Domestic violence charges are very serious, and judges are often cautious when granting requests for restraining orders due to the potential for false accusations. Our domestic violence lawyers know how to handle these complex cases. Our team of experts and investigators will interview witnesses and gather all the necessary evidence to ensure your restraining order is not unreasonably denied.

Getting out of an abusive relationship can be one of the most difficult things you will ever do. Our domestic violence lawyers will help you remove yourself from this destructive relationship, and we will give you the support necessary to move on with your life.
