The requirements of a protection order or a restraining order filled against you can severely disrupt your life. If the terms of the protection order are violated, you could potentially face jail time, electronic monitoring, and/or a permanent criminal record.

Protective orders are obviously not an infallible solution for all problems. However, while uncomfortable, they can be beneficial for your family. They can protect your and your children when distance and space is needed.

Whether you are interested in a protective order for your family, or you need a criminal defense lawyer to fight one, O’Keeffe O’Brien Lyson Attorneys have the knowledge and experience needed to assist you.

When a restraining order has been filed, there is a hearing ten days later to determine how long the protection order should remain in effect. You will need an experienced North Dakota/Minnesota criminal defense lawyer to represent you. A O’Keeffe O’Brien Lyson Attorneys criminal lawyer can prepare evidence and documentation to help you extend the order against someone, or have the duration of the order against you shortened or eliminated.

If you have a protection order or a restraining ordered being filled against you, or if you need to fill an order to protect your family, contact or call O’Keeffe O’Brien Lyson Attorneys at 701-235-8000 today to schedule a conversation with a skilled team member.
