Petitioning for a Massachusetts Restraining Order
How do I petition for a restraining order in Massachusetts?
If you would like to take out a restraining order against an individual or individuals, Altman & Altman LLP can help. To petition for a restraining order, you must fill out an application at a local court where you will be required to testify before a judge. If you are seeking a restraining order during non-business hours, however, you may visit the local police station, which may contact a judge to issue you a temporary restraining order that is valid until the first day that the local court is open for business. Our Boston Criminal Lawyers at Altman and Altman LLP can assist you in both the application process and inside the courtroom to successfully attain a restraining order.
Although an attorney is not necessary in petitioning for a restraining order, our experienced trial attorneys at Altman and Altman LLP can maximize your chances of being granted the protection that you need. They will ensure that your views are effectively communicated when testifying in court and that your requests are given full consideration by the presiding judge, both of which will increase your likelihood of successfully obtaining a restraining order.
