Why a Domestic Violence Victim Can Obtain Restraining Order
You finally got free of your abuser. You’re in a safe place, the police have arrested your abuser, and you feel like the torment has ended. But has it really? What will happen when he/she gets out of jail? How can you protect yourself once and for all?
The common answer to these types of questions is getting a restraining order against your abuser. Although there have been many who say that restraining orders don’t protect domestic violence victims as well as they should, it’s still the best way to legally protect yourself from suffering any further abuse.
What a restraining order does is prohibit your abuser from contacting you in any way. That includes through email, phone calls, or through text. If the abuser does try to get in contact with, he/she could be arrested. Not only will the restraining order protect you, but your family as well. With a restraining order, the abuser will not be allowed custody of your children and visitation rights will be revoked.
