Are You Facing A Possible Injunction?
Injunctions are a legal instrument that typically stops someone from doing something. It often is used in domestic violence situations where one individual has engaged in a variety of criminal actions against another who resides with them.
They may also be used in many other situations involving other individuals or businesses and may also be called a temporary restraining order (TRO). Most orders for protection are a type of injunction. If you face these charges, Adam Chrzan, Attorney At Law, can help.
For these cases, the party requesting the injunction either has been subject to domestic violence or has reasonable cause to believe they are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence. The judge will look at a wide variety of elements to make this determination.
Ex Parte Order
A judge may grant the order ex parte, meaning you do not need to be present. If granted, a hearing is then set to determine the duration of the injunction. It may be in force for a specific period or may have no expiration date. If you fail to appear at the hearing, it is very likely the injunction will be granted. You need to have a lawyer to argue on your side during this hearing.
In addition to preventing your contact with an individual, these injunctions can prohibit you from possessing a firearm. Even if you are not convicted of a crime, you could still face this type of injunction if someone claims you have threatened them with violence. To prevent the loss of your right to hunt or use a gun, you need an experienced attorney representing your rights at this hearing.
Injunctions apply to much more than just domestic violence. If you have a dispute with a neighbor and things become heated, it is possible the other party could file an injunction if they feel threatened. Our attorney, Adam Chrzan, can help protect your interests.
